Do you know how to jump start your car? It’s best to learn now, before it is too late. Here are the basic steps to jump start a car:


  1. Call a friend or make friends with a kind driver nearby that is willing to help.
  2. Grab your jumper cables, which – take note – you will want to have purchased and in your trunk ahead of time.
  3. Put both cars in either park or neutral and shut off their ignitions.
  4. Attach one of the red clips to the positive terminal on your battery and the other red clip to the positive terminal on the other battery.
  5. Then, attach one of the black clips to the negative terminal on the other battery, and lastly, attach the last black clip to an unpainted, metal surface on your car.
  6. Try to turn on your vehicle.


This should solve your problem, and as long as you drive around for a bit without turning off your car again, your battery should be good to go. To learn more or for more tips, visit us anytime at Mountaineer Lincoln.
