How To Jump Start a Car
A car battery is the essential piece of your vehicle, providing the most important function to start the engine, but also powers auxiliary components of the vehicle including the lights and radio. Once the engine is started, most of its energy is used to power your car is generated by its alternator. But turning the car on is an essential function of the car battery, without this function the car is owned useless. When you turn the key and hear some sputtering, but the engine fails to start, a dead battery must be the reason.
A variety of things can cause your battery to die: cold or Heat weather, leaving your lights on for too long, or of course, a weak or dysfunctional battery. A jump start can sometimes help to solve all your battery troubles or at least get your car started so you can drive it off to the nearest garage and figure out the issue. Jump-starting your battery yourself requires power cables and a little bit of knowledge too, but never fear, this information will tell you everything you need to know to jump-start your vehicle safely!
Before you try to jump start your vehicle, take a moment to understand a few information. Read your vehicle’s manual, specifically, the sections related to jump start your car battery. Few car manufacturers recommend not to jump start the car, or some may advise you special instructions related to your specific model of vehicle. Make sure you know where your car’s battery located. In most vehicles, it’s in the front of the car or under the hood. But in some models, the battery is located in the trunk side. usually, in this case, there will be designated terminals under the hood for use in case if you need a jump start. look at the battery to identify the positive and negative terminals, Each terminal should be clearly marked with a (+) sign for positive and a (-) sign for negative. It is very important to ensure that, the batteries are connected properly to execute a successful jump start and avoid a dangerous accident situation.
A pair of jumper cables should have one red cable and one black cable. The colors are important indicators of where to attach the cables correctly. It is found that In any electrical system, energy flows from the negative terminal of a battery to the positive through wires, powering something – in this case, the vehicle’s starter along the way. In order to jump-start the vehicle properly, you must ensure that the correct terminals are being connected. The red cable will always indicate the side that should be attached to the positive terminal, and the black should be attached to the negative terminal. Don’t touch the jumper cable clamps to anything but the intended place only.
You Can Jump Start a Car Either Using Portable Jump Starter or with the Help of Another Vehicle
In either case, begin by ensuring all involved vehicles and tools are turned off. To be safe, remove your keys from the ignition entirely. Take caution that there is nothing flammable nearby. Though uncommon, sparks, fires, and even explosions are possible when jump starting a car. Car batteries and jump starter packs contain high voltages of electricity, and while jump starters and cables are designed to reduce the risk of improper usage, accidents can happen under certain
Here’s How to Use Jumper Cables if you’re Jump-Starting Your Car with the Help of Another Car
First, identify where each car’s battery is. In most vehicles, the battery is with the engine. Then park the cars close enough together that you’ll be able to connect jumper cables to both cars’ batteries. Be careful, however, that no parts of either car are touching the other. This is important to prevent any flow of electrical current between the vehicles other than through the jumper cables. Both cars should be put into park and powered off to begin the process. Notice again which terminal on each battery is positive, and which is negative. Then, attach the jumper cables to the appropriate places. The positive (red) cable should be attached to the positive terminals on each battery. The negative (black) cable should have one end attached to the negative terminal of the dead battery, and one end grounded.
The Safest Order to Attach the Jumper Cables is as Follows:
- Attach one red jumper cable clamp to the positive terminal on the dead battery.
- Attach the other end of the same cable, the second red jumper cable clamp, to the positive terminal on the working (live) car battery.
- Attach one black jumper cable clamp to the negative terminal of the working (live) car’s battery.
- Attach the other end of that cable, the second black jumper cable clamp, to an unpainted piece of stationary metal on the car with the dead battery.Do not attach this clamp to the negative terminal on the dead car’s battery.
Though some may say it’s alright to attach the last negative jumper cable clamp to the negative terminal of the dead battery, this increases the risk of fire or explosion if the jump start doesn’t go as planned. Try to find somewhere away from the battery, to decrease the potential of sparks igniting any hydrogen gas that could be coming from the battery. Safer options include the car’s chassis, a bolt on the engine, the alternator bracket, or a designated grounding terminal away from the battery.
Next, start the car with a live battery. This will immediately start charging the dead battery. In some cases, the car with the dead battery will be able to be started immediately, but in others, it will need some time to charge. Allow the engine to run for a couple of minutes in order to allow electrical current to flow from the working battery to the dead one. Then, attempt to start the car with the dead battery. Turn the key to start and hold for a few seconds, but no longer than that. You may want to try this a couple of times. If your jump start was successful, the engine should spring to life. Depending on the cause of your dead battery, you may want to have the car immediately looked at. In other circumstances, your car may be okay after the jump start. Driving the car for a while will help to recharge the battery.
The last step is to disconnect the jumper cables. This ought to be performed in the reverse order that they were connected. Don’t touch the cables to anything else until they’ve all been disconnected, or you risk sending an electrical current somewhere you may not want one!
Thus, it’s Best to Do This in the Following Order:
- Disconnect the negative (black) jumper cable clamp from the chassis/terminal on the car that received the jump start
- Disconnect the negative (black) jumper cable clamp from the working battery’s negative terminal
- Disconnect the positive (red) jumper cable clamp from the working battery’s positive terminal
- Disconnect the positive (red) jumper cable clamp from the car that received the jump start
Congrats, you’ve jump-started your vehicle! Be sure to thank the good friend, family member, or neighbor who helped you out by letting you use their live battery!
If, however, your jump start doesn’t work, and you find yourself turning the key in the ignition over and over again without the engine turning on, you may have a larger problem at hand. In this case, it’s best to have a mechanic look at the car or to have it towed somewhere it can be serviced.
