How to Jump Start a Car

It’s practically inevitable that at some point in your life, your car will need a jump start. Car battery life has a lot of variables, so it’s always smart for Scottsdale drivers to know how to properly jump start a car.

The Proper Way to Jump Start a Car

If you have Volkswagen Roadside Assistance, you can make a call to Volkswagen North Scottsdale for jump start car service, and we’ll get you back on the road in no time. However, it’s still a good idea to understand the proper way to jump start a car:

  • Park the car with the good battery facing the car that needs a jump start. Turn off the engine. Engage the parking brakes on both cars.
  • Open both hoods and find the batteries.
  • Identify the positive and negative terminals. Make sure they’re clean and free of any corrosion.
  • Connect the red clamp to the positive post on the dead battery. Hook the other red clamp to the positive terminal of the battery with charge.
  • Connect the black clamp to the negative post on the good battery.
  • Connect the last clamp to an unpainted metal surface on the car’s frame.
  • Start the engine of the vehicle with the good battery first, then the one with the dead battery. It might take a little time for the battery to charge.
  • Be sure to keep the vehicle running for a while after getting the jump to fully recharge the battery.

As you’re getting started, remember to exercise caution. Take the steps in the order they’re laid out here, and don’t let any of the clamps touch while they’re hooked up to a battery.

Every drive who knows how to jump start a car should also know how to change a tire and how to replace a brake light!

Trouble-Shooting: When the Car Won’t Jump Start

There might be a problem other than the battery.

  • If you try and start the car but only hear a clicking sound, the starter might not be functioning. Schedule service at Volkswagen North Scottsdale near Cave Creek.
  • If the electrical systems of the car turn on, but the engine fails to turn over, the problem could be a number of issues. The ignition switch, battery, starter, or a fuse could be the problem. It’s worth bringing your vehicle to a service center so they can diagnose the issue.
