How to Jump-Start Another Car

Keeping a set of jumper cables in your car’s emergency kit is a practical way to round out what you may need. With a little practice and basics, you’ll not have an issue with them. The first thing to realize is that each end of the cable has a positive connection marked in red and a black connection that’s negative. The other thing is to not let the cables touch a metal surface once you’ve started connecting them.

Begin with the dead battery and connect the positive cable to the terminal next to the plus sign. From there, go on to the negative cable and the terminal with the negative sign. Repeat the steps with the running battery. After they’re connected, let them charge for a couple of minutes. Rev the engine of the working car and try to start the dead car. It should fire up after a couple of tries. If you go beyond several attempts at starting it, you should stop and have your vehicle serviced. There may be another electrical issue.

If you have questions or concerns about your car’s battery or any other aspect of maintenance, stop in and speak with a knowledgeable member of our Honda parts team. We’re at Priority Honda Chesapeake and are happy to assist you.
