Steps to Jump Start a Dead Battery

If you have a dead battery, you can usually jump start it using the battery from another vehicle. Make sure both vehicles are parked close together so that the cable reaches from one battery to another. The cables need to be untangled and in good condition.

Start with the dead battery. There is a red clamp that you're going to connect to the positive end of the battery. The other red clamp will then be connected to the good battery. Keep both vehicles off until the black clamps are in place, one on the good battery and the other on a surface of the other car that's not painted.

Let the vehicle with the good battery run for about five minutes before trying to start the other car. When you remove the cables, you need to do so in the reverse way that you attached them. Visit Dolan Lexus to get the battery that was dead checked to determine if you need a new one.
