Simple Instructions for Jump Starting a Car

Jump starting a car with a dead battery is simple if you follow these simple steps. Try to bring the nose of the two vehicles as close as possible. Make sure both of the vehicles are in park, then turn off the ignition.

The jumper cables with the red clip will go to the positive ends of the battery, good battery first, and then battery needing the jump. The black clip goes to negative on good battery, then the other black clip goes to the metal frame on car needing the jump.

Start the engine in the vehicle with the working battery. Wait a few minutes, then try to start the car with the dead battery. If it doesn't start on first try, wait a few more minutes, then try again. If the engine is trying to crank, wait and try again.

After the car is running, come to the auto service facility here at Seidel Hyundai in Reading and we can test or replace your car battery.
