No one, including our team at Fuccillo Chevrolet, Inc. in Grand Island, NY, wants to be stuck with a dead battery. Fortunately, there are ways to give your battery a jump-start.

First, you'll need two vehicles parked side by side. The engines need to be off, and it's a good idea to engage the parking brakes. Hook a red clip to the positive terminal of your old battery. The other red clip should be attached to the other battery's positive terminal.

Hook one black clip to the negative terminal on the good battery. The remaining black clip should be attached to a metal surface that doesn't have any paint on it, such as one of the metal struts that holds open the hood. Turn on the engine of the helper car. After about a minute or so, turn on the engine connected to the old battery. Then, remove the cables in reverse order.
