We¡¯ve all gone through it. Some may never admit it. But we¡¯ve all been stranded with a dead battery at some time or the other. Jump Start a Car
is easy enough. Done improperly, it can have disastrous consequences.
Steps for jump starting your car:
Park both cars facing each other and close by. Be absolutely sure that they do not touch each other.
Open their bonnets and locate both batteries and the necessary leads.
Make sure the cables are completely unwound and then, attach the leads in the following order.
First, attach a red lead to the positive terminal of the dead battery. Then, attach the other red lead to the live battery. Attach one black lead to the negative lead of the live battery and the other black lead to a grounded metal piece.
A grounded metal piece of the Battery Jump Starter
can be any piece not in the engine compartment that isn¡¯t painted or has oil on it.
Ensure all connections are properly made.
Start the engine of the live car.
Keep the car running for 30-60 seconds.
Start the engine of the dead car.
If that does not work, try the same procedure again (for a longer time this time).
If it does not work, the battery is dead altogether and needs to be replaced. Call in the professionals.
Remove the leads in the exact opposite order. Black lead from ground, black lead from live battery, red lead from live battery, red lead from dead battery.
Keep the engine running for at least 30 mins thereafter to recharge the battery.
MOST IMPORTANT: Do not forget to thank the nice people who took the time to come to your aid!Jump Start Battery
The process seems easy enough, but here are some precautions you should before and during the procedure:
Ensure the problem is a discharged battery. If it¡¯s discharged the headlights or dashboard lights should be working but dimly.
Check that the live battery you¡¯re using is of the same or higher rating than the dead battery.
Do not let any of the leads dangle in the engine compartment where they could come into contact with the moving parts.
DO NOT let any of the leads touch each other.
Wear protective gear if available and try and stay at a distance from the whole set-up as much as possible.
Don¡¯t leave the ignition, stereo, A/C, headlights, or any other device on in either of the cars.
Ensure there¡¯s no damage or leaks in the Jump Starter Pack
battery. If there is, call help immediately and do not try to jump start the car.
