- Park a vehicle with a charged battery next to the vehicle with the dead battery. Make sure emergency brakes are on in both vehicles and raise the hoods.
- Attach a red-handled/positive jumper cable clamp to the positive terminal (the one with the plus sign) of the charged battery.
- Connect the red-handled clamp to the positive end of the dead battery.
- Now attach the neighboring black/negative cable to the vehicle with the dead battery. Clamp it somewhere where the current can ground out, such as a bolt or bracket on the engine. You can also attach it to any metal, unpainted part of the vehicle’s frame.
- Ground the other black/negative cable on the charging car, as described in the previous step.
- Now you can attempt starting the vehicle with the dead battery.
- Once the vehicle is running, remove the clamps one at a time in reverse order.
Miscellaneous Battery Tips
- New batteries come in a discharged state and must be charged before use. Depending on the battery type it may require three to four hours to charge before achieving maximum capacity.
- It is important to condition (fully charge) the battery every two to three weeks. Failure to do so can significantly shorten the battery’s life.
- It is normal for the battery to become warm to the touch during charging and discharging.
- If the battery will not be in use for a month or longer, it is recommended that it be removed from the devise and stored in a cool, dry, clean place.
- Do not expose the battery to moisture, rain, or extreme heat.
- Check the water level every couple of months. It should just be touching the bottom of the refill hole. Refill, when needed, with distilled water. Do not use tap water, which produces corrosion on the terminals.
- Clean the terminals periodically with a wire brush.
