How to Jump Start Another Car Safely

To jump-start one car with the assistance of another car, be sure to have gloves, glasses, wire brush, and jumper cables.

Get the cars close to one another, open the hoods and turn off that engine. Put on the glasses and gloves, then use the wire brush to remove that corrosion on the battery.

The two red jumper cables go to the positive ends of the batteries, dead battery then good battery. The two black jumper cables go to negative ends of good battery and then on any metal surface of the dead battery car. Start the one car and rev the engine a few times, then you can try starting the other car. Once the car starts, remove those cables in the reverse order and close the car hoods before driving off.
