Help a Dead Car By Jump Starting

Jump starting a car is done by connecting a dead battery to a vehicle that has a working battery. The jumper cables are red and black and have matching terminals on both car batteries. Turn off the working car and attach the jumper cables to the battery. Be careful about the clamps touching, as this will cause a spark.

Attach the jumper cables to the battery that is dead. Turn on the good car for a few minutes, allowing the dead battery to charge. Try starting the dead car. If it starts, you can take off the jumper cables. If it doesn't start, you can wait a few more minutes to see if that helps.

Once the dead car starts, you can take off the cables. Let the once dead car run for about 20 minutes to let the battery charge up again. If the problem persists, visit Planet FIAT for help.
