Here are the necessary steps for jump starting your car from another car.

  • To make things easier, it is advised that you get both cars as close to each other so the jumper cables can reach both car batteries easily.
  • With the cars in park and engine off, open both of the hoods and locate the terminals on each battery. Get familiar with the ends of the jumper cables now.
  • Take both red ends of the jumper cables and attach to positive ends on both batteries, dead batter first. Now take both black jumper cables, start on good battery, then attach the last black cable to a metal bracket anywhere on car to be jumped.
  • Turn over the one car, wait, turn over the other and then remove the cables.

Today is the perfect day to visit our service center at Pines Lincoln so our team can load-test your car battery to make certain it won't fail.
