How to Jump Start a Car

A dead battery can be a real issue, but it's easy to jump start a car with a pair of jumper cables. Park the cars with batteries close enough to run the jumper cables. Turn off the cars and put them in park or neutral with the brake on.

Find the positive and negative terminals on both batteries. Connect the red jumper cable to the positive terminals on both cars. Connect the black jumper cable to the negative terminals on both cars. Start the engine of the live car. Wait a few minutes and then start the engine of the dead car. It should start up right away.

If you want your battery checked or think you need a new battery, bring your vehicle by Toyota of Bedford. Our team would be happy to check it out and tell you if you need a new battery or other maintenance done.
