How to Jump-Start a Car

Jumper Cables
 

If you’re BMW or other vehicle is having trouble starting, you’ll likely need a jump-start. Additionally, your car battery may require service or replacement. Usually, jump-starting the battery first will solve the issue. Follow our simple guide on how to properly jump-start your BMW or other car, truck, or SUV form BMW of Mamaroneck before you get with our service team for a battery check. If your car doesn’t start, schedule a service appointment for a quick and easy replacement.


Jump-Start a Car with These Steps

You’ll need a set of jumper cables and another vehicle to get started. If this isn’t possible, you can call a jump-start car service like AAA or get with our service center to explore your options. If you have the cables, follow these simple steps:

  1. Have the car with the good battery park facing the other vehicle, then make sure that the vehicle is turned off. Check to make sure both parking brakes are engaged.
  2. Open both car hoods and locate the batteries. In many cases, you’ll 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 before applying the jumper cables.
  4. Connect the red clamp to the positive post on the dead battery.
  5. Uncoiling the battery cable, hook the other red clamp to the positive terminal of the battery with the charge.
  6. Connect the black clamp to the negative post on the good battery. 
  7. For the final clamp, connect it to an unpainted metal surface on the 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. Consult your owner’s manual for more info on recommended times.

Other Tips for Your Car Battery

If you’ve attempted to jump-start your vehicle but it won’t start, you may need to have your battery thoroughly checked. Troubleshoot the issue with the following first before you consider a battery replacement or other service:

  1. If you try and start the car but only hear a clicking sound, the starter might not be functioning. Reach out to our service team to have one of our service technicians diagnose the issue.
  2. If the electrical systems of the car turn on but the engine fails to turn over, the ignition switch, battery, starter, or a fuse could be the problem. It’s worth bringing your vehicle to our team to run testing to help find the issue.
  3. Be sure to keep your vehicle running for a while after getting the jump. That allows the battery to recharge fully after it’s been drained.
