Learn to Jump Start Your Vehicle

At Southgate Lincoln we like to keep you informed. Jump starting a vehicle is an important skill to know for situations when your car doesn't start, and carrying a set of jumper cables in your car is a smart idea. It's also nice to be able to help other people who are stranded on the road.

Simple Jump Start Procedures

First, locate the battery or access terminals on each vehicle. Park each vehicle close enough to each other that the jumper cables reach both batteries. Leave the engine running and connect the red positive clamps to the red positive terminals on each car; then connect the black negative clamps and terminals accordingly; the car with the dead battery should start right up.
