Dead batteries happen, make sure you know what to do in case it happens to you. Roadway Auto Insurance wants you to know what to do in case your battery fails.
If you don’t have a roadside assistance service on your policy, It’s always a smart idea to make sure you have jumper cables in your car at all times. You’ll always be prepared for your own emergency, or to help out a stranded coworker in the parking garage.
How To Jump Start A Car Battery:
Step 1: Take out your Jumper Cables.
Step 2: Make sure both cars are off and parking brakes are engaged for your safety. Open the hoods of both cars.
Step 3: Attach one of the red clips ,the positive clamp, to the positive terminal of the dead battery.
Step 4: Attach the opposite red clip, to the positive terminal of the live battery.
Step 5 Attach the black clip, the negative clip, of the same side- to the negative terminal of the live battery.
Step 6: Attach opposite black clip to a non-painted metal surface in your car. Often the sides of the hood of your car will work.
Step 7: Start the engine of the live battery car and allow the car to run for several minutes.
Step 8: Attempt to start your engine, the dead battery car. If the car starts, make sure you drive around and let your battery recharge for a minimum of 15 minutes.
