Safely Jump Starting Another Car

Nothing is more frustrating than to discover your vehicle has a dead battery. Fortunately, if you have a set of jumper cables, you can quickly get back on the road. Use the following steps to jump your vehicle's battery.

  • Place the vehicles in a nose to nose position.
  • Turn off both vehicles and set the parking brakes.
  • Find the negative and positive terminals on both batteries.
  • Attach the positive cable clamp to the dead battery positive post.
  • The other end of the positive cable will attach to the positive post of the working battery.
  • The negative end of the cable will now attach to the negative post of the working battery.
  • Attach the other end of the negative cable to a metal block or bracket on the other vehicle.
  • Start the engine of the working vehicle.
  • Start the engine of the dead vehicle.

After you start your vehicle, go to the service center at VonDerAu Ford in El Campo, TX to have your battery checked.
