Figuring Out How to Jump Start Another Car

If you try to start your car with a dead battery, the engine will not turn on. Your battery could be dead from overuse or because your car's lights were left on without the engine running and drained the battery.

To get it jump started, hook a set of jumper cables up to its battery terminals and those of a working car. The positive and negative ends should line up together. Turn on the car engine and leave it for two minutes to give the battery enough time to charge. Start the dead car's engine to see if it will turn over. If it will not turn over after a few tries, this is a good sign that you need to replace the battery.

Find a replacement car battery and have it installed by the skilled service team at Jack Miller Auto Place to get your car up and running again.
