Jump-Start One Car with a Different Vehicle Safely

If you have a dead battery in your car, you can safely get it started by getting a jump-start from another vehicle. Bring the running car close enough to the nose of your vehicle, so the two battery compartments are close. Turn off the engine, open both car hoods, unwrap the jumper cables.

Place one of the red jumper cables on the good battery terminal that is marked with a plus-sign. Then attach the other red cable to the plus-sign on the bad battery. Place the black jumper cable on the good battery terminal with a minus sign. The last black cable needs to be attached to bare metal on the car getting a jump-start.

Start the car, then wait a few minutes for the dead battery to get some power. Crank over the other car engine. If there is trouble with the car battery, come to our Mitsubishi service center in Auburn, WA today so we can inspect the entire charging system.
