QUICK GUIDE ON HOW TO JUMP START ANOTHER CAR
To safely jump another vehicle, you’ll need a few things. These include safety glasses, jumper cables, a wire brush, and gloves. Bring the car to the nose of the car needing a jump, open the hood of both cars, turn off the engine, and turn off the car lights. If either battery has signs of corrosion, use a wire brush to create clean contact points for the jumper cables.
The jumper cables are marked red for positive and black for negative. Connect red to the positive battery terminal on your good vehicle, then positive to the car needing the jump. Connect the black to the good battery’s negative side, then metal on the car needing a jump. Start the operational car and rev the engine every few seconds to help get a good charge to the other battery. After two minutes, start the other car and leave it running.
Bring the car and battery to our auto parts and repair bays at Land Rover Frisco for a complete charging system inspection before trouble happens again.
