Can you charge a dead battery with another car?

A deadbattery is no-one's idea of fun, but you can still jump a car byconnecting the bad battery to a fully charged one using jumper cables.

Here, we show you how to jump start a car, assuming that the charged battery is in another vehicle.

Bear in mind that depending on how dead the car battery is, jumper connections may or may not start a vehicle immediately. After you've connected the two, you may need to start the car with the healthy battery, and spend a few minutes with the two hooked up to give the dead battery some charge.

Its also a good idea to read your cars manual carefully to see if there are any special recommendations to be observed when jump starting. And if you're in any doubt, call AAA oryour local roadside assistance, who will have the equipment to get your car running without any risk of damage.
