The Basics of Jumpstarting a Battery

Being able to revive a car's dead battery by using another car is an important skill to have. It can get you or someone else out of a difficult situation, and it doesn't require any more than a set of jumper cables.

To properly jumpstart a dead battery with another car, make sure that both engines are turned off. Attached the jumper cables to the positive terminals of both batteries, and then the other set of wires to the negatives. Start the functional car for a few minutes, rev the engine, and then try to start the second car. It should start within three or four attempts.
