How to jump start a car and who to rely on

Jump start your car with no worries

Not all vehicle breakdowns require towing. If it’s a car battery that fails you, you’ll probably just need a jump start. Battery charges are much easier fixes than, for example, replacing a flat tire or repairing a vehicle after an accident. That being said, a dead battery has the same result—an immobile vehicle. Just in case, it’s important to have the contact information for a towing company that provides emergency jump start services handy.

MR Towing ServicesJump Start a Car

If you need an emergency jump start, call MR Towing Services at (214) 238-5134. We have staff available 24/7 to help those who are experiencing call problems. Whether it’s 5 PM or 3 AM, we are here to help! Of course, there is never a good time for a vehicle breakdown. There are better times than others, but no one ever wants to be stuck on the road, regardless of the time of day.

Jump starting a car doesn’t necessarily require professional service. It’s something you can probably handle on your own, but you will need the help of another person and their vehicle. To jump start a car, you have to:

  1. Grab a set of jumper cables
  2. Each car needs to be in park or in neutral
  3. Take one of the red clips and clip it to the positive terminal of your car battery. You should see a “+” symbol or something of the likes.
  4. Take the other red clip and attach to the positive terminal of the other vehicle.
  5. The black clip then goes to the negative terminal on the other vehicle’s battery.
  6. Take the other black clip and attach it to an unpainted metal part of our vehicle. DO NOT attach it to the negative terminal on our vehicle.
  7. The other car starts first, let it run for a few minutes and then try to start your car.

After this, your battery should charge and your vehicle should be ready to drive.

Seems simple enough, right?

The problem is that it’s not always easy to get assistance from another person. People aren’t always willing to help those who are stranded. You could be stranded in the middle of nowhere or maybe you don’t want to disturb a friend or family member from work or sleep.

In such situations, give MR Towing Services a call for an emergency jump start. We’ll get to you very quickly and provide an easy, hassle-free jump. In extreme cases, the car battery may be completely drained and unrecoverable. In such situations, we can tow your vehicle to an auto shop where a new battery can be purchased and installed.

A car battery can die due to leaving lights on (such as headlights, interior lights, and hazard lights) or running the AC when the vehicle is not turned on. Such actions can drain the battery. Additionally, running your car for the first time after a long period of rest can negatively affect the battery, as can being left in cold weather.

Keep these factors in mind so you don’t accidentally drain your car battery. But in case you do, give us a call and we’ll complete an emergency jump start.
