Jumper Cables: Handy to Carry

If you have some cargo room, you may want to keep things like a first aid kit, extra blankets and a set of jumper cables with your vehicle. The latter is particularly helpful if you experience a dead battery or find someone else who is struggling with one.

Knowing how to jump a car safely is an importantly skill for all drivers to have. Begin by parking the nose of the dead car as close as possible to the nose of a working vehicle. Find the positive and negative terminals on both cars' batteries. Begin by attaching the positive end of one jumper cable to the dead battery. Then attach the other end to the live battery. The negative end of the jumper cable should be first connected to the live battery and then to a metal portion of the car. Turn the engine of the good car on for a couple of minutes, and then start the dead car.

Stop by Volvo Cars of Bloomington for a battery replacement as soon as possible.
