A Guide To Jump-Starting Your Car
It is inevitable: at some point in your life, you are going to sit in your car, turn the ignition, and nothing happens. This may be because you left the lights on in your vehicle and the battery drained or maybe the battery has just worn out. Whatever the reason, jump-starting your car can be a quick and easy process if you know what you are doing.
You should never assume you can figure out how to jump-start your car on your own because there is a small risk of injury or even death. Also, your car (or the vehicle that is supplying your juice) can be seriously damaged as well. Here are some safety tips:
It's Jump-Start Time
Here is what you need to know to jump your battery safely and efficiently.
Try to drive on the battery for 15-20 minutes to give it time to charge enough to prevent a re-occurrence. If you left your lights on and that caused the battery to die, you are probably going to be okay.
If however, you’re not sure what caused it or it happens again, you should probably have a professional take a look at it, perhaps someone from Express Auto Repair shop in Colorado Springs.
