Learning the Right Way How to Jump Start Another Car

To jump start a car with another, be sure you have a good quality pair of jumper cables, safety glasses and gloves, and a wire brush.

Once the two cars are nose-to-nose, open the hoods, turn off the one engine, and use the wire brush to clean the corrosion off any of the battery contact points.

Take the two red ends of the jumper cables and place one on the bad battery followed by the other on the good battery.

Take the two black ends of those jumper cables, place one on the good battery and the last end on a bare metal surface anywhere on the car being jumped.

Start the one car, wait, then you should be able to start the other car before removing all the cables.

The best thing that you can do for your vehicle today is schedule your next maintenance check with Volvo Cars of State College so we can get a look at it.
