How to Jump Start Your Car by Using the Battery of Another Car

Here is how you can jump-start your car using the battery of another car.

To make sure the cables reach, bring both cars as close together as possible. Turn off the car after both are in park and then you can open both of the hoods. Get yourself familiar with the positive and negative sides of the jumper cables and both car batteries.

Begin by attaching the red cables to the plus side of the dead and then the good battery. Then put the black cable on minus side of the good battery, placing the remaining black cable on any metal near the dead battery. It is safe to start the one car, wait, then try to start your car. Give it a few tries, then take off the jumper cables in opposite order.
