A dead battery can be a major inconvenience. Knowing how to successfully jump start your vehicle can help you get back on the road quickly. At Honda Carland, our service team wants to help with the transportation needs of our Roswell, Georgia customers. Your local Honda dealership wants to help you learn how to simply jumpstart your vehicle if you encounter a dead battery, giving you the tools to travel with confidence. Before you begin, you will need someone with a functional car battery willing to help you and jumper cables to connect your vehicle’s battery to the battery in the other person’s vehicle.

To safely jumpstart your vehicle, you will need to:

Locate your jumper cables and take them out
Ensure that both vehicles are turned off
Check that both vehicles are in Park. It is also a good idea to engage the parking brake of both vehicles
Connect the red clips of your jumper cables to the positive terminals on both batteries
On the functioning battery, attach the black clip on one end of your jumper cable to the negative battery terminal
Attach the black clip on the other end of the jumper cable to an unpainted metal surface on your vehicle away from your battery
Keeping your hands away from the battery and jumper cables, it is time to start the vehicle with a functioning battery, letting the engine run for several minutes, then try to start your vehicle
If your vehicle starts at this point, keep your vehicle running and carefully disconnect the jumper cables, ensuring the clamps do not touch

Keeping your vehicle running is important once the jumpstart is successfully completed. This allows your vehicle to recharge. If your vehicle fails to start the next time you try to use your car, your battery will likely need to be replaced.
