How to jump start a car if the battery is flat (saves you calling out RAC/AA etc)

Having a decent set of jump cables in your car can save you a call out (with possibly charges) and long wait for the AA/RAC/Green flag to come and rescue you.

Knowing how to jump the car will also help:


If the battery is fully dead, leave connected, whilst donor is running for 5-20 minutes before attempting to start the car. Failing that try a decent battery trickle charger, if still nothing then most likely a new battery is needed.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
