How to Jump Start a Car

A dead battery can leave you stranded, but there is a way to get yourself on the road again if you keep a set of jumper cables in your emergency kit and can find a second car to help out. Jump starting a car is a way to give it the electrical charge its engine needs to start from another vehicle with a good battery.

Hook up the two car batteries with your jumper cables according to instructions that came with them, then try to start the disabled car. You may need to have the boosting car running while you attempt to start the one with a dead battery.

Here at Patterson Honda, our certified automotive technicians can diagnose any electrical problems your vehicle may be having that can cause its battery to be drained. Bring it to our location in Wichita Falls, TX for an inspection or battery replacement today.
