Dead battery got you down? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about jump starting your car safely.
There’s nothing worse than getting into your car after a long day at the office, only to find it won’t start.
If this is your first time having to jump start your car, running around trying to find a good samaritan with a set of jumper cables to borrow can be a bit of an ordeal. To avoid getting stuck waiting for roadside assist to rescue you, it’s a good idea to keep a set of jumper cables with your emergency kit. Dont skimp on a low budget set of jumper cables, we recommend that you buy a decent set of jumper cables as not all jumper cables are created equal.
Just like any other car part, your battery suffers its fair share of wear and tear. Before you jump start your car, check for any obvious damage which could be the source of the problem.
If there’s no obvious damage, you’ll need to find another motorist to help you jump start your car.
Always remove the negative (-) cables on the jumper lead first and replace them last.
Now you know how to safely jump start your car, without electrocuting yourself or damaging either of your vehicles.
