    I have showed this to every person I have jumped in the last few years and it surprises me how many people
    A) don’t know this procedure
    B) actually argue with me when I do it this way

  6. Htay9000 says:

    the negative cable should be connected on the bit which is red. thats the colour for the negative thing.

    1. make sure all cars are turned off and in neutral or parked

    2. connect RED cable to dead battery
    3. connect RED cable to booster battery
    4. connect BLACK cable to dead battery
    5. connect BLACK cable to metal portion on your engine

    6. start your booster car

    recommended sequence[5] is to first connect the positive terminals of both batteries, then connect the negative post of the charged battery and make the last connection to the frame of the vehicle with the dead battery

  11. figotes says:

    Operation of a lead-acid battery produces hydrogen gas which is flammable. Caution is needed to avoid a spark that may ignite the gas

  12. figotes says:

    Motorists can be severely injured by a battery explosion. In the United States in 1994, a research note by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association estimated that about 442 persons were injured by exploding batteries while attempting a jump-start

  13. figotes says:

    make the last connection to the frame of the vehicle with the dead battery, at a location away from the battery. By not connecting the last clamp on to the dead battery, the risk of ignition is reduced. The described sequence of connections is intended to reduce the chance of accidentally shorting the good battery

    so i go + –> + and – –> frame / -?

  15. tariqziyad says:

    i notice alot of mechanics don’t really care wheather you start with the dead car or live car first, i wonder if it really matters.

    If your battery is extremely dead, then hooking the neg cable to body won’t do much good( like my battery). So then u have hook it up to the neg terminal. Nothing will explode unless you have a very old battery.
