Also, if your battery is dead, youíll need to ask someone to let you use their car to jump-start it.
???? So if your battery is not all the way dead, how do you jump start it without another car? What, do you jump start it with your own car?

jump start a car

There is some thinking required to jump a battery. Many folks who jump a battery do not allow the cables to stay connected untill the dead battery has enough voltage to allow the alternator to begin to refill the dead battery with more voltage. A dead battery can be thot of as a empty container. A fully charged battery is as a container full. Jumping a battery fills the container with a small amount of voltage with is used by the engine running. An alternator needs at least 12 volts to make 15 volts using just about 2 amps to make about 80 amps. A good jump for a dead battery is at least 5-10 minutes. Frank
