Cables for Jump Starting
You will want to make sure to follow the proper directions for jump starting a battery. The first thing to do is to make sure the dead car and the working car are parked near or next to one another. Then take the red clamp and connect it to the positive terminal of the dead battery. You will want to attach the other end of the red clamp to the positive terminal of the working battery. Take the black clamp of the other cable and connect it to the negative terminal of the working battery. Then take the other end of the cable and attach it to an unpainted metal surface of the dead vehicle.
Once the cables are connected, try jump starting your car. As the vehicle turns over, let it run for a few minutes. This will help to charge up the battery to keep it operating. When you disconnect the cables, make sure to do it in the reverse order you put them on in. Disconnecting the cables properly will help prevent any damage to the battery. If you suspect that the battery is becoming weak, make sure to schedule an appointment so we can check it. By having an efficient battery, you will help ensure that the vehicle will start this winter.
