Jumpstarting a Car? Pay Attention to the Order of Events

Jumpstarting a car is something that many of you will have to do in your life. It’s not a difficult task; however, you’ll want to make sure you do certain things in the correct order to protect yourself from getting hurt.

You can read directions on jumpstarting your car in your owner’s manual. One of the most important steps is to make sure you hook up your positive, or red, jumper cables to the dead battery first, and then to the live battery. You’ll follow-up by connect the negative cable, or black, to the dead battery and then to the live one.

Remember that needing to jumpstart a car usually means that your battery’s life is near its end. Be sure to stop by our Cherokee, IA auto parts and repair facility to see if your battery needs to be serviced or replaced to avoid being stranded in the future.
