Tips for Charging Your Car Battery

When we sell you a car at Mathews Acura, we want more than the check that comes with it - we want to know that the vehicle we've sold is going to run well and exceed your expectations for years to come. That's why we think it's crucial that you know how to do simple maintenance tasks like charging your car battery.

The first step is to locate the positive and negative terminals located on either side of your engine, usually marked with an '+' and '-' indicator so you can't mix them up. If you're using a battery charger, make sure it's unplugged. If someone's giving you a jump, make sure their engine is off. Now, attach the red clamp to the positive terminal and the negative to the black. Once your charger's on or the jumping vehicle's engine is running, the battery is on its way to being charged.
