Giving Another Car a Jump Start

You can jump start another car without much hassle or time at all as long as you have some jumper cables and other car that runs. If a car will not start because its battery is dead, then all you have to do is hook up the jumper cables to a running car to give it a charge.

The terminals on your car battery are labeled as either positive or negative. Connect the pair of red jumper cables to the positive terminal ends. The black ones go with the negative battery terminal ends. Start your car once the cables are hooked up. Your car should stay running for at least five minutes while the other car charges. Once the other car is ready to start, it should stay on for about 15 minutes before turning it off.

Before you are stuck with a battery that no longer works, come to our service center here at Volvo Cars of Burlingame in Burlingame, CA.
