How do I jumpstart my car if I have jumper cables?
Suppose you have access to jumper cables and another vehicle with a good battery. To jump-start your car, both cars should be in neutral and shut off the ignition in both cars.

Make sure to start the working vehicle and let the engine run for a few minutes before cranking the car with a dead battery.
I am trying to jump-start my car but cannot see the battery under my car hood. How can I jump start in this case?
Attach the jump box or cable to the positive pole under the hood and undyed metal (ground). If this doesn’t work, some batteries are hidden in the trunk and would require professional assistance to jump-start the vehicle.
Its not always easy or convenient to get help from other vehicle, not many people are willing to help. Should that situation arises, the starter stops responding and you are stranded on the side of the road call your closest towing company or roadside service for help with emergency jump start. In some cases the battery may be completely drained and dead. If that’s the case, you will need to tow your car to the mechanic shop of your choice.
