? need lil help?

how do you jump start a car using the battery. Ok.. so the positive go to the positive and the negative go to the dead cars battery but what about the negative of the good battery's car? Where is the "ground" or whatever you put it. and do you have to rev the engine when its connected?

are you asking how to jump a car?

all you have to do is connect positive to positive and negative to negative, because the negative side of your battery is already connected to a ground, that will work as one.

Then start the car with the good battery, then start the car with the bad battery.

BOOM your done.

No, no, no, no, no, bad, connecting the positive and negative terminals of a battery can result in an explosion.

Connect the positive side of the good battery to the positive side of the bad battery, and the negative side of the good battery to the negative side of the bad battery. The order you do it in isn't important.

also, if you have the positive and negative terminals of the charged battery hooked up to the cables, make sure the oppsite ends of the cables don't touch, as they will spark and doom will occour all over your face.

I want to make sure I understand.....So you hook up the bad battery first by connecting the black part to the red and the red to the black, then hook up the good battery with the opposite black to black and red to red while the car is running right?
