  1. Have the vehicle with the good battery park facing the other vehicle, then make sure that the vehicle is turned off. Confirm both parking brakes are engaged.
  2. Pop the hoods of both vehicles and locate the batteries. You may need to remove a plastic hood to expose the battery terminals.
  3. Identify the positive and negative terminals. Make sure they’re clean and free of any corrosion.
  4. Connect the red clamp to the positive post on the dead battery.
  5. Uncoil the battery cable and hook the other red clamp to the positive terminal of the battery with the charge.
  6. Then, Connect the black clamp to the negative post on the good battery. 
  7. Lastly, connect the other black clamp to an unpainted metal surface on your car’s frame.
  8. Once everything is hooked up securely, start the engine of the vehicle with the good battery first, then the one with the dead battery.
  9. Once the dead vehicle has been jump-started, carefully remove the jumper cables in the reverse order that they were placed on, then shut off the car that was used to help jump-start the dead car.
  10. Keep the engine running on the restarted vehicle for at least 10 minutes to ensure that the weak battery doesn’t die again right away or drive it around for a little while. Consult your owner’s manual for more info on recommended times or other steps for how to jump start a car.
