Jumpstarting a Car When Your Car Battery is Dead

Do you know how to jumpstart a car battery in the event that your car battery died? Connecting jumper cables is pretty simple, just match the colors on the cables to that on each battery and you can jumpstart your car. The engine of the other car should be running once the clamps have been attached, and you will likely need to turn over your engine a few times to get it started. Learning how to hook up jumper cables is something that every responsible vehicle owner should know how to do, and if you’re not sure, just ask the crew at iAUTOHAUS to give you a quick tutorial the next time you are at the shop.

  • Connect the RED clamp to the positive (+) terminal of the dead battery, then repeat the process on the live battery.
  • Connect the BLACK clamp to the negative (-) terminal of the live battery.
  • Connect the other BLACK clamp to non-painted grounded metal on the vehicle with the dead battery.
  • Ensure that the cables are free of the engine and that they won’t get tangled in any moving engine parts.
  • Rev the good car to charge the disabled car, waiting at least 60 seconds before trying the dead car.
