Connect the other end of this cable to positive cable on the working car. Next, plug the black jumper cable into the negative side of the good battery and a clean piece of metal on the dead car. You don’t want to plug it into the negative part of the batter because these might cause an explosion. Finally, start the good car and let it run for a few minutes to charge the dead battery. Then, all you need to do is remove the cables in the reverse order that you put them on.
