Learning How to Jump Start a Vehicle

You don't want to be in the kind of situation where the battery on your vehicle just will not work but there is a chance that you will one day be in that kind of situation. It is important that you know how to jump-start a vehicle when a battery has drained.

If you have the space to do it safely, you want to get the vehicle with the dead battery and the vehicle that will be helping it out set up with their noses together. You also want the vehicles to be turned off and you want to have their parking brakes in place.

Attach the clamp on the positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery that is not working. Attach the other end to the good battery, and then attach the negative cable to the good battery. Attach the other end of the negative cable to a metal section of the engine. Stand back from the vehicles and start up the one with the good battery. This should start to charge the drained battery.
