How to jump start a car with a dead battery

One of the worst things you can have happen when you are attempting to drive in Reno is for your vehicle not to work because you have a dead battery. If you find yourself stranded due to this situation, it's important to know how to jump start another car.

Once you have positioned the vehicle that will do the jumping, you must make sure both vehicles are turned off. Connect the positive jumper cable to the live battery first and then to the dead battery. Repeat the process with the negative cable. Start the car with the live battery and let it run for a few minutes. Then attempt to start the car with the dead battery. If the car doesn't start right away, let the other car run a bit longer.

If you want your battery checked or have a battery that needs to be replaced, bring it to Lithia Reno Subaru.
