Learning How to Jump Start Another Car

Jumping another car is easy if you know how. All you need are some good jumper cables, a wire brush, safety glasses, and work gloves.

Bring the two cars together nose to nose, turn off the engine, open the hoods. After you put on your glasses and gloves, use that wire brush to clean all the battery contact points.

Place the red cable to bad battery then good battery. Place the black cable on the minus side of the good battery, then it needs to be safely secured to any bare metal surface on the dead battery car.

Once secure turn over the engine and wait. After a few minutes, turn over the other vehicle and then remove all the cables in the reverse order they were just added.
