What is the equipment that you need to jumpstart your car battery?

To jumpstart your car battery you need jumper cables and the power source whether it may be a jump box or another vehicle. Jumper cables are usually insulated, long and thick cables with toothy clips at both ends. The clips are differentiated with red and positive colour. The red clip indicates the positive and the black clip indicates the negative.

Jump boxes are usually portable batteries. Mostly roadside assistance uses the jumper box as the source to help out the vehicles that are stranded in the middle of the roads due to the dead battery.

 Steps involved in jumpstarting your car

  • First, get the jumper box or another vehicle that is going to act as a power source.
  • Make sure the car ignition is turned off and the parking brake is properly put on
  • Open the hood and locate the batteries
  • The next step is to attach the alligator clips to the terminals.
  • Make sure the terminals are free of corrosion and the dust
  • The red clamp should be connected to the positive post of the dead battery.
  • The other red clamp should be connected to the positive post of the working battery.
  • The black clamp should be connected to the negative post of the working battery.
  • Ensure that the last black clamp is connected to a metal surface of your car that is unpainted.
  • After jumpstarting turn test the lighting system of the car that is being jump-started. If it is bright it is one of the good signs that your car battery has received enough charge.
  • Unclip the jumper cables
  • Finally, start the engine of your car and start to drive.


What to do if the car does not jumpstart?

If your car doesn’t start after the battery jumpstart services, try it once again. If the car battery does not gain power even after several attempts it indicates that the car battery is severely damaged beyond the level of recharging it.
