If you do not know how to boost your own car safely, you could potentially start a fire, cause damage to your car or cause damage to the vehicle of the good samaritan helping you. Four steps could ensure the safety of your and the other person’s vehicle helping you. 

  1. First, with the good car running, you will place the red positive jumper cable clamp to the positive post of the running car. Be sure the cable clamps do not touch each other. Then place the positive jumper cable clamps to the positive battery post of the running car.
  2. Next, place the negative clamp of the jumper cable to the negative post of the car you are jump starting. Then do the same to the positive jumper cable clamp to the positive post of the car you are jump starting. Give the dead car battery about 3-5 minutes to charge.
  3. Next, go ahead and try to start the car with the dead battery. then you can remove the cables from both vehicles. Be sure to keep the jumper cable clamps from each other to prevent sparks and damage to both vehicles. 
  4. Once the car has started, do not turn it off for at least 20 to 30 minutes to completely recharge the battery to keep it from dying again.

The best and most convenient way to get your car back on the road from a dead battery is to call a professional towing company. Professional towing companies have the right equipment, training, and experience to boost your car battery in a manner of minutes safely.
