Car Jump Starter

Now that you know what can happen if you start your car by mistake, here's what you should and shouldn't do when starting any vehicle:

What should be done

  • Be sure to read the owner's manual before starting the car. Some newer cars have starter ears, which means you should not connect the cable directly to the battery terminal. You should also be aware that starting some cars may void the warranty.
  • When starting, make sure the two cars don't collide. They should be within reach of the cable.
  • Make sure the voltage of both batteries is the same.
  • Turn off the car engine with a rechargeable battery. In addition, the radios, headlights, turn signals and hazard lights of both vehicles should be turned off.
  • Disconnect any plugged in accessories, such as phone chargers.
  • Wear safety goggles and rubber gloves.

What shouldn't be done

  • Avoid smoking when starting.
  • Make sure you don't bend any car batteries.
  • If the battery liquid freezes, make sure not to try to start the battery. This could cause an explosion.
  • Do not start the car when the battery is broken or leaking. It could also cause an explosion.
