Auto Repair & Diagnostics: How to Start a Car with Jumper Cables

Last updated 7 years ago

Many drivers find themselves in a situation where an Auto Repair Shop may not be needed. For instance, their car battery is dead, and they have no idea how to use jumper cables. If you would like to learn how to be self-reliant when your car battery dies, take a look at this video on how to use jumper cables to start a car.


  • The mechanic in the video explains that you should always have a pair of safety glasses or sunglasses on to protect your eyes from any battery acid that could erupt from the car battery at any time. The positive clamp on the jumper cables is always red, while the negative is always black.
  • It is important to make sure that the clamps are clean and not corroded, as this will make it difficult for them to transfer power to a dead battery. It is also very important to remember that the red and black clamps should always be held as far apart as possible, as you don’t want them touching and creating enormous sparks.

If you find that your battery has no life left in it, come to Greulich’s Automotive Service center. We have a team of professional mechanics that will cater to all of your automotive needs.
