How to Safely Jump-Start a Vehicle

Knowing how to jump-start a vehicle is an essential skill that every driver should know. Here are a few tips and tricks that you can use to safely jump-start a car with nothing more than jumper cables.

After both vehicles have been turned off, you should attach the positive cable clamps to the positive terminals on the vehicles’ batteries. You can then attach the two neutral clamps to the neutral terminals on the batteries. Once the cables are attached, you should turn on the working vehicle and let it run for a minute or two before starting the vehicle with the dead battery.

The service department here at McLaughlin Volvo Cars can make sure that your vehicle starts every time that you turn the key. Please call our Moline location today if you think that your ignition system may be damaged.
