How Can I Get My Car to Start With a Bad Battery?

0 out of 5

About this property

If you’re dealing with a bad battery and need to start your car, there are a few methods you can try. Firstly, you can jump-start your car using jumper cables and another vehicle with a good battery. Make sure both cars are turned off, connect the cables to the positive and negative terminals of each battery following the correct order (positive to positive, negative to a metal ground on the dead car), start the working car, wait a few minutes, then try starting your car.¬†Another option is using a portable jump starter, which functions similarly to jumper cables but doesn’t require another vehicle. Additionally, if you’re in a pinch, manually pushing or rolling the car downhill while in gear (for manual transmission) can engage the engine and start the car, although it’s not recommended due to safety concerns.
