Don't Let a Dead Battery Zap Your Wallet

A dead or dying car battery can do more than keep you from getting going in the morning; it can leave you stranded on the side of the road. Don't wait for your battery to become a big problem. Instead, call on the experts at our  Massachusetts auto service center to test, charge or replace your battery. If your battery loses its charge, you can try jump starting it to get it back up to speed. Follow the steps below to safely jump your vehicle using another vehicle ? you'll need a friend with a car and a pair of jumper cables. If you don't feel comfortable performing these steps yourself, call our Massachusetts battery experts.

  1. Open both vehicle hoods and locate the batteries.
  2. Remove the battery terminal covers and clean off any corrosion.
  3. Attach the positive (red) jumper cable to the positive (red) terminal of the dead battery. Make sure that both metal clamps are firmly in contact with the terminal.
  4. Attach the other end of the positive (red) jumper cable to the positive (red) terminal of the assisting battery.
  5. Attach the negative (black) jumper cable to the negative (black) terminal of the assisting battery.
  6. Attach the remaining end of the negative (black) jumper cable to an exposed metal part of the disabled vehicle's engine, away from the battery and the carburetor/fuel-injection system.
  7. Start the assisting vehicle's engine.
  8. Start the disabled vehicle's engine. If the vehicle doesn't turn over, wait a few minutes and try again.
  9. Allow both vehicles to run connected for about three minutes.
  10. Leave the jumpstarted vehicle running while you disconnect the cables in the reverse order that they were attached and close the hoods of both vehicles.
  11. Keep the jumpstarted vehicle's engine running for about half an hour to allow the battery to fully charge.

If your vehicle continues to have trouble keeping a charge, you likely have a dying battery or a poorly performing alternator. Our Massachusetts auto service center can fix both problems easily, so if you're a driver from Raynham, Fall River, Brockton, Taunton or New Bedford experiencing car battery trouble, we can help.
