How do I jump start a car

You have two options:
1. First you need another battery and a set of jump start cables.
2. Or you can buy a jump starter for about $40 and use that.

In either case, you connect the red cable to the + terminal of your car battery. Then you connect the black cable to a good ground, like the engine on a bolt or metal part of the engine.
Then try to start the car.

When you get it started, remove everything in the reverse order.
Hope this helps.

Ranger making clicking sounds but will not start, why? All interior and engine lights come on fine & truck will start with a jump but once turned off will not turn back on. Battery is new and has been...

Hello. My name is Mike,

Let me see if I can help you. When starting a car and you hear a click every time your try to start it, most the times it is only a couple issues to cause this. Number one and most common is the connection (wire) from the battery to the starter / solenoid is not getting a good connection which means, when you turn the key it is breaking the 12 volt circuit to trigger the solenoid which then triggers the starter to start the motor. Now, sense you say you have a good battery and you can start the car with jumping it, this tells me, it most likely is not the starter. In process of elimination there is only two things left where this problem lies.

Number one: Make sure the cable-wire (ground and positive) that goes from your battery down to your starter is clean and the connections on both ends are tight.

Number two: The second and only other place that normally would cause this based on your symptoms and the fact you can jump it, is the solenoid is not working correctly that is part of the starter. Most cases if this is the case, you would have to replace the starter.

I hope this helped you, and if you can rate my free advice accordingly, Thanks Mike from Fixya

Turned key on,lights on ignition go like its aflat battery but not,lights go on ok,told it could be starter motor,took starter motor out an use battery to test it while it was starter out of...

Easier to test in the car. Put starter back in the car. First, please try to jump start the car. If it will jump and start, starter is OK. If it will not jump start, go to the starter with a screwdriver. Use the screwdriver to short the big red-wire terminal to the small terminal on the solenoid. Be very careful not to short the big red-wire terminal to anything else, or you will get a big spark. If the battery, starter, and solenoid are good, the car will crank. If it does not crank, try again while jumping the battery to another car. If it cranks, the battery is low or the terminals need to be cleaned and tightened. If you have more questions, please reply.

If you banged on the starter motor and it started then you have a stickie bendix drive and solinoid sticking
But if you have to also jump start it as well then do this.....When it wont start before doing anything else turn on the lights and hit the starter and if the lights go dim or go out the battery is no good or you have a short in the eletc take battery lead off for 2 days and if starts you have a SHORTin the eletrics

Battery wont stay charged

Check the alternator is charging.
Check dash indicator 'BAT' lamp lights when Ignition on prior to starting motor,
Battery terminal voltage should be 14.0 - 14.5V with engine running and headlights on.
Ensure battery terminals are clean and firmly attached - ensure chassis ground is properly connected.

Non starting engine, rapid clicking noise

Mike, From your description of the problem, and given that the car was, prior to this attempted start, working properly, it soinds like you are not getting enough power to your starter solenoid to fully engage, thus the click. Start by checking your connections at the battery, make sure they are clean and tight, I would suggest you disconnect and clean thououghly with a wire terminal brush. Water and baking soda will help dissipate the acid build up. You may then spray the connections with a contact spray, (from your local auto parts store), then reconnect. Also if you think the battery is weak, you could try a boost when you attempt to re-crank. Your connection at the solenoid should also be checked and cleaned, although the problem is likely at the battery. Remember, it takes a lot more amps to engage the starter and spin your engine, than to turn on the lights and blow your horn. If this works, you should have your charging system checked for output..usually free at advance or autozone. The corrosion at the terminals works both ways, not only can it keep your car from cranking, it can impede charging of your battery as well. Hope this is helpful.
