If you ever have to give another car a jump start, you will be able to get it done easily if you follow these steps and have a pair of jumper cables. It may be the case that the battery is totally dead and needs to be replaced, in which case you should visit the service team at Parks Fiat of Wesley Chapel.

Do not try to hook up the jumper cables while a car's engine is still running. Pop the hoods when the car is turned off. Connect the cables to the correct battery terminals. There are four terminals in total. Start the working engine after that in order to jump start the dead battery. You can try turning it on after about two minutes. If the engine starts, it should keep running for at least 15 minutes before you shut it off again so that it does not immediately die.
