If A Jumpstart Won’t Work, Call For Emergency Roadside Assistance

images-34.jpegThere is nothing worse than getting into your car and turning the ignition, just to find that your car won’t start.  This is a daily occurrence for motorists, so it is important to know how to handle this situation.  In addition to having a road service program, there are some things that you can do on your own.

A battery that is weak won’t supply ample current to rotate the motor at a high enough speed.  This is why it is necessary to be able to jump-start your car.  A red cover or cable marks the positive on your battery, and a black cover or cable marks the negative.  Reversing the connections can result in a battery explosion.  Be careful not to make this mistake.  The explosion could cause severe burns or blindness.

If you turn the key and there is full power without starting, it is probably the park neutral switch.  This is the clutch safety switch.  If this happens in an automatic vehicle, make sure your vehicle is in “park”, if it happens in a manual car, depress the clutch firmly to the floor and try to turn the key again.

There are numerous reasons why a car won’t start.  These simple tips will help you handle matters yourself.  However, if your car still won’t start, you need to call emergency roadside assistance to help you out.  Then, you will need to take your car in for professional service.
