Oh, get your minds out of the gutter, guys!!
I saw an ad today for some sort of battery starter that plugs into your cig lighter so you don’t have to use jumper cables to start your car if you leave the lights on. In the ad, a bunch of dizzy looking women lamented on how hard it is to use jumper cables. My question? Are there people (not just women) who don’t know how to jump start their car in an emergency? This was one of those things my dad didn’t let me leave home without knowing (along with changing a tire).
If you don’t know, here’s the scoop:
dead batt. car
pop both hoods. connect red marked clip to rescue car positive batt connector (the one with the +). Connect black marked clip to the negative batt connector.
do the same with the dead car batt (red on pos, black on neg).
start rescue car. Start dead car.
remove cables- order not important- just one clip at a time and don’t touch them together.
You’re on your way!
I just hate to think of any women (or men) standing around in a parking lot with a set of cables saying “if only I knew how to use these damned things!” Print this out and put it in your glove box.
