If the battery in your car has died, or you've encountered someone who is dealing with a dead battery, it's important to know how to properly jumpstart the broken down car. A quality set of jumper cables is all you need to get a dead battery back on the road.

Safety is important, so you want to make sure that both cars are parked near each other and out of the flow of any traffic. Take the positive cable and clamp it to the positive terminal of the dead battery, and then attach the other end to the live battery. Do the same with the negative terminals. Run the live engine and try to start the dead battery.
