How to Help Another Car with a Jump Start

It doesn't take much time or skill to jump start another car with a dead battery. You can accomplish this by using a running car and a set of jumper cables that will need to be hooked up to the broken-down car. It only takes about five minutes of the cars being hooked up to get some juice back into the battery.

The most important thing to remember is that the black cables are for the negative ends, and you should connect the red cables to the positive ends. Whatever you do, the car with the dead battery should not be turned off for at least 15 minutes after the charging is completed. This will make sure that your battery gets enough of a recharge to keep going.

Before your battery completely wears down, come by our service center at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Corpus Christi located in Corpus Christi, TX for an affordable and reliable replacement battery in no time.
