How to Jump Start a Car How to Charge the Dead Car Battery
Hi! I'm Mark Blocker and in this segment weare going to discuss charging the vehicle. After connecting, I generally leave the vehicleon that I am jumping from. When I am jumping from another vehicle, I always leave the vehiclethat I am jumping from running because this keeps the charging system of that vehicleperforming and putting out energy. So instead of just jumping and pulling the necessaryenergy to start this vehicle, it is also starting to charge that battery back up. At this timeit would be a good idea to wait 5 to 10 minutes if you could to let this vehicle start chargingand build up some energy in the battery. You don't just jump it, get the vehicle running,disconnect and try to move on about your business
because you still have a dead battery. Ifyour vehicle stalls or dies, you want have any energy to start it again. You will haveto go through this jump procedure. By letting it charge for a few minutes it allows thebattery voltage to build up and you have some functioning voltage once the vehicle starts.Watch the next segment on starting the vehicle.
