The Basic Steps of Jumping a Car

Knowing how to jump your car could prevent you from being stranded, and jumping your car is a relatively easy skill to learn. Both vehicles should be turned off and set to park or neutral at the beginning of this process. The next step is to attach the positive cable to the positive terminal of each battery.

The negative cable should be attached to the negative terminal of the working battery and any metal part of the car with the bad battery. Start the car with the properly functioning battery and allow it to run for a few minutes.

The final step is to attempt to start the car with the failing battery. If that doesn't work, check the connection from the cables to the battery. In some cases, it may be necessary to tow the car to Foster Motors or elsewhere for additional assistance.
