How to start a stalled car
Starting a stalled car depends on whether the battery is in question, a quick start can help solve the problem, or you need to replace the starter.
You put the key on the ignition and there is no reaction. Your car won’t start. You need to get back on the road and get to your destination. Do you know how to diagnose a problem and start parking?
This four-part article will help you find a stalled car. Share how to determine the problem part 1, part 2 to discuss when and how fast start battery, part 3 showed with a manual transmission car driver’s second leap startup options, and to discuss the question of starter part 4.
Part 1: determine why the car isn’t starting
The first step to starting a parking car is to identify the problem. There are two main reasons why cars can’t start: the battery has died or the starter has broken down. There are several reasons for your battery to be placed in a light or radio for long periods of time, or for faulty or damaged alternators.
Step 1: turn on the car and listen. To determine whether it is a battery or starter, turn the key to the starting position, or press the button on the starting car (if equipped) and listen.
If the engine “starts” and emits a “rr rr rr” sound, the problem is not your battery or starter. If the engine is quiet, you probably have a bad starter. If you hear a click, but the car won’t start, the battery may have died.
Step 2: check the headlights. Another way to diagnose a battery or starter problem is to check your headlights.
If you try to start the car, you won’t hear any sound, and if your lights aren’t on, you may have a battery problem. If the car is turned off, the battery may not be fully charged, or there may be a short circuit in the starter. If the headlights don’t flicker, turn off or have any apparent reaction to the start of the car, this may be a problem for the circuit.
If your car will start but not start after diagnosing your car, there may be a fire or fuel system problem.
Part 2:4: quickly start the battery
To start the battery, you need to connect the cables and the “booster” cars that are currently up and running. You can buy several different kinds of jumper cables, with different length and current strength. Make sure the jumper you buy is suitable for your model and model.
To use the jumper:
Step 2: turn off the car. Turn off the two cars and put them in the park.
Step 3: red death is positive. Start with the dead car, and clip the red jumper cable to the positive terminal of the battery, or mark it with a + symbol.
Step 4: the donor has a red face. Clip the other end of the red cable to the positive terminal of the booster.
Step 5: black donors are negative. Stay on the powertrain and clamp the black cable to the negative terminal of the “drive car” or the battery with the “-” symbol.
Step 6: black on dead metal. Finally, connect the other end of the black cable to the metal surface of the dead car. Make sure the surface is bare, which can be bolts or screws.
Step 7: check the clip *. Make sure all the clips are securely attached to the battery of the car and the dead car, and no cables touch the engine parts on any vehicle.
Step 8: start the donation cart. Start the booster and let it sit idle for about three to five minutes.
Step 9: start the dead car. After three to five minutes, let the booster leave and start the engine of the dead car. If the battery is a problem, the vehicle should start.
Step 10: run two cars. Allow two cars to be free for another three to five minutes when connecting to a cable.
Step 11: remove the black cable from the dead car. After a few minutes of idling, the two cars began to remove the jumper cables from the previously parked black cable or dead car.
Step 12: remove the black cable from the booster.
Step 13: remove the red cable from the booster.
Step 14: remove the red cable from the dead car. Finally, remove the red cable from the previously parked car.
Step 15: buy a new battery. At this point, you can drive to the local auto parts store or service center to buy and install the new battery.
Part 4: quick start the manual gearbox
If you have a manual transmission, you don’t have to always use a jumper to get your car going again. Although it works best when going downhill, a little help from a friend can work on the ground. It won’t work if you face uphill.
To start the manual transmission:
Step 1: turn on the car. Make sure the car is in the open position.
Step 2: release the parking brake.
Step 3: put the car in the second gear. Step on the clutch pedal and put the car in the second gear. You can start a car in the first gear, but it may be more difficult because the engine has to work harder.
Step 4: be ready to go. Keep the clutch pedal under step and loosen the brake.
Your car should start! Direct to service center or repair shop for comprehensive diagnosis and maintenance.
Part 4: replace your starter
If a jumpstart doesn’t work, you may need to change your starter. The problem is best left to professionals. Drag your car to a local mechanic or service center to fully diagnose the problem and fix the necessary parts.
Keeping your car running safely is the main goal of every driver. No one is willing to pay insurance premiums for cars that cannot be driven. Learn about parking reasons and how to start it to get you on the road.
