For jump-starting the battery of your vehicle, you will want to make sure to know the proper procedure. You will want to have long jumper cables that are sure to reach a good distance. That way you can jump-start the car in case you cannot part the operating vehicle right next to the dead battery vehicle. You can always contact us as well to see what the proper cables should be.
Jumpstart your car
When connecting the jumper cables, it is important to make sure to follow and read the owner’s manual. Doing so will help you be aware of the proper order to hook up the jumper cables in. Also, look at the condition that your battery is in. If it is cracked, corroded, or visibly damaged, do not try to jump-start it. This can cause issues and damage to the battery, as well as the vehicle. You will want to make sure that the jumper cable ends do not touch. This is most important when they are connected to the battery, so it is just a good habit to practice this all the time.
You should start off by connecting the red positive clamp to the terminal of the dead battery. This should be clamped onto the positive terminal. Then connect the other red clamp to the battery that is operating. You will then want to connect the black clamp to the negative terminal of the operating battery. The last, but most important thing is to connect the other black clamp to a part of the dead vehicle that is unpainted.
After you get the vehicle jump-started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse order of which you put them on in. This way you can prevent damage to the battery or an explosion from happening. If you are not sure how to properly jumpstart or remove the cables from your vehicle, always remember to check the manual or contact us.
