Step 1: Warning
Step 2: Equipment
Every car requires a working battery to run properly. A car battery is like a regular battery in that it has positive and negative poles and it can run out of charge. There are different types of batteries. Most car batteries are similar to the picture on the right where the entire battery is visible; however, some batteries are similar to the picture in the middle where only the battery bolts are visible. When a car battery runs out of charge, it can be because of a number of reasons, such as leaving car lights on for an extended period of time. When a car battery runs out of charge, this is when you need to jumpstart the battery or replace it all together.
Step 3: Materials
Gather the following necessary materials:
Car with a working battery and preferably its owner
Jumper Cable Set
Flashlight [if jumping the battery at night]
