Steps to Jumpstart a Dead Battery

When you're dealing with a dead battery, yours or someone else's, having the skills to hook the two batteries up properly can get the second car started easily. Having a quality set of jumper cables in your vehicle can help you get out of difficult situations.

After you've made sure that both cars are in a safe location, hook the positive ends of the jumper cables to the positive terminals of the batteries, first to the dead one than the positive one. Repeat the procedure with the negative terminals. Start the running car and let it charge the battery for a few minutes before attempting to start the second car.
