DIY Boosts: Mastering the Art of Jumpstarting at Home

Jumpstarting a car is a simple and essential skill that every driver should know. Whether your car battery is dead due to a faulty alternator, leaving the lights on overnight, or extreme weather conditions, a jumpstart can save you time and money by avoiding the need for a tow truck or a new battery. In this beginner’s guide, we’ll walk you through all the steps.

Step 1: Find a Helper

The first step in jumpstarting a car is to find a helper with a working car battery. Make sure the helper’s car is parked close enough to your car, but not so close that the vehicles’ batteries touch.

Step 2: Turn off Both Cars

Before connecting the jumper cables, turn off both cars and engage the parking brakes. This will prevent any accidental movement while jumpstarting the car.
