Jumping a Car For the First Time

If this is your first time jumping a car, there is a lot that you need to know so that you can feel comfortable with the idea of jumping a vehicle. The good news is that the clamps and wires have been designed to make it easier for people.

The jumper cables are color coded in order to make sure that you know which cable connects to the positive and negative terminals of the batteries. When connecting the batteries, you want to connect the positive terminal of the dead battery to the positive terminal of the good battery. The same is done with the negative terminals.

Make sure that the vehicle is within reasonable distance. Also, make sure that the clamps that connect the cable to the terminal are well connected so that you can actually get a good jump going to the vehicle that is having problems.
