How To Jump Start a Car

Jump Start a Car

Jump starting a car might be a must if you’ve found yourself on the side of the road with a dead battery. You might think that how to jump start a car involves a complex process, but Lynn drivers will be happy to know that it’s not that hard. If you need to jump start a car battery, Honda North can help you on how to properly jump start a car. And if your car won’t jump start, the service pros here can help with that too.

The Proper Way to Jump-Start a Car

If you want to jump start your Burlington car, you’ll need some jumper cables and a second vehicle volunteering their live battery. Once you have those things, it’s as simple as following these steps:

  1. Park the car with the good battery facing the other vehicle and make sure that both vehicles are turned off and have their parking brakes on.
  2. Open both hoods and find the batteries. You might have to take off a plastic hood to find the battery terminals.
  3. Find the positive and negative terminals. Ensure they’re clean and free of any corrosion that might have gotten on there.
  4. Place the red clamp on the positive post of the dead battery.
  5. Uncoil the battery cable and put the other red clamp on the live battery’s positive terminal.
  6. Put the black clamp on the positive post on the dead battery.
  7. Place the final clamp on an unpainted metal surface on the dead car’s frame.
  8. After you’ve got everything hooked up, start the engine of the good battery, then the one with the dead battery.
  9. After you’ve jump started the dead vehicle, remove the jumper cables in the opposite order than which you placed them. After that, shut off the car that helped restart the dead car.
  10. Have the engine running on the restarted vehicle for at least 10 minutes. If it still dies, it’s time to schedule service with Honda North.

You can also call a jump start car service like AAA to get your car jump started. Now that you know how to properly jump start a car, you can help others out if their car has a dead battery. Check with Honda North regularly to see what coupons they have for service too!
