How to Jump Start a Car the Right Way

How do you jump start a car in Manhattan when you don’t have the battery right under the hood? All you have to do is locate the starter aid terminals, which you can typically find to the side of the engine. Now that you know this, it’s time to get the jumper cables, find another driver who can help you, and get started with these steps.

How to Jump Start a BMW: Connecting Your Cables

Have the driver with the live battery pull up to face the BMW with the dead battery. The two vehicles shouldn’t touch, but they should be up against each other so the jumper cables don’t get too tight. Turn the live vehicle’s engine on and turn off all the electrical components in your own BMW.

After that, pop each vehicle’s hood and put the cables on in this order:

  1. Attach one of the red clamps to your own BMW vehicle’s red terminal.
  2. Attach the other red clamp to the red terminal on the other vehicle.
  3. Attach the black clamp to the other vehicle’s black terminal.
  4. Attach the other black clamp to any unpainted piece of metal on your vehicle’s frame.

When you’re doing this, ensure that the clamps don’t touch each other. This might make sparks, which could be dangerous when you’ve got action going on under the hood in Queens.
