What To Do When Someone Else Needs A Jump Start

Whether you're at the Quick Stop or the Shopping Mall, there is always a chance that someone there is going to have a dead battery and ask you for a jump start. And it is important that you know how to help safely so no one gets hurt.

First thing to do is make sure that both vehicles are in park and the emergency brake is on. Then, with both vehicles turned off, take the red clip of your jumper cables and connect them to the positive (+) post of your battery. Do the same to the black clip on the negative (-) Post of your battery. But, please make sure the opposite side of the cables are not touching; it can cause a huge spark and possibly hurt someone.

Now, you can hook up the cables to the other vehicle's battery in the same manner as the first. Finally, start your vehicle first, then try starting the other vehicle. When it does start, disconnect the cables in the same order.

If you have any more questions or concerns, then head on over to Grand Junction Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. There, they would be more than happy to help you as you shop for a quality battery replacement for your vehicle.
