Revive a Dead Car Using Jumper Cables

If you find yourself with a dead battery, you can try to revive the battery using jumper cables. The cables are red and black. The red cable attaches to the positive battery terminals and the black to the negative ones.

You start the process by turning off both cars. Attach the jumper cables to the good car first. Once attached, the cables are live, and the clamps should not touch. This will cause sparks and can damage the battery of a good car. Attach the jumper cables to the dead car battery and then have everyone step back.

Turn on the good car and allow the battery to charge the dead battery for a couple of minutes. Try starting the dead battery car. If it turns on, take off the jumper cables. Allow the newly revived car to run for about twenty minutes so that the battery can charge completely.
