How to Jump-Start a Car

 

 

Are you having trouble starting your vehicle? Do you think you car battery is dead? If you are stranded somewhere in Atlanta and your car won’t jump-start, the service experts at INFINITI of Gwinnett are here to help! Follow our guide below to learn how to jump-start a car battery and avoid the hassle of having to contact a jump-start car service. However, if your battery is beginning to die, we recommend ordering a new battery from our INFINITI of Gwinnett Parts Center.


How to Properly Jump Start a Car

Learning the proper way to jump-start a car is easy, all you needs is another vehicle and a set of jumper cables. Calling a jump-start car service is also a valid option if you have the time and resources available. Regardless of which route you choose, once you are ready, just follow the instructions outlined below:

  1. Park Working Car In Front of Car with Dead Battery: Have the car with the good battery park facing the other vehicle, then make sure that the vehicle is turned off. Check to make sure both parking brakes are engaged.
  2. Locate Batteries on Both Vehicles: Open both hoods and find the batteries. You may need to remove a plastic hood to expose the battery terminals.
  3. Identify Negative and Positive Terminals: Identify the positive and negative terminals. Make sure they’re clean and free of any corrosion.
  4. Connect Red Clamp to Dead Positive Post: Connect the red clamp to the positive post on the dead battery.
  5. Hook Other Red Clamp to Charged Positive Post: Uncoiling the battery cable, hook the other red clamp to the positive terminal of the battery with the charge.
  6. Hook Black Clamp to Charged Negative Post: Connect the black clamp to the negative post on the good battery.
  7. Hook Other Black Clamp to Dead Car’s Frame: For the final clamp, connect it to an unpainted metal surface on your car’s frame.
  8. Start Charged Engine, then Dead Engine: Once everything is hooked up securely, start the engine of the vehicle with the good battery first, then the one with the dead battery.
  9. Remove Jumper Cables in Reverse Order: Once the dead vehicle has been jump-started, carefully remove the jumper cables in the reverse order that they were placed on, then shut off the car that was used to help jump-start the dead car.
  10. Keep Engine Running on Your Car: Keep the engine running on the restarted vehicle for at least 10 minutes to ensure that the weak battery doesn’t die again right away. Consult your owner’s manual for more info on recommended times
