If you’ve ever been stranded because of a dead battery, then you know that it can be a major inconvenience. Perhaps you even waited for hours until a tow truck arrived. You can take matters into your own hands with a simple do-it-yourself procedure, known as a jump-start. Lodi Toyota wants to ensure that you have the correct steps for this important procedure.

To jump-start, use a set of standard jumper cables. The cables are color-marked with red for positive and black for negative. Using a second car's battery, simply connect the red cable to the positive battery terminal and the black cable to the negative battery terminal. Repeat the same procedure for your car. Once all connections are secure, start the second car, and then start your car. It’s as easy as that!

Be sure to contact our service department for further assistance after you’ve completed the jump-start.
