  • How to Jump Start a Car

    So you are running out the door in the morning figuring that you have left early enough that you'll make it to work just in time.  As you jumping  into the driver's seat you wonder if your wipers will be enough to move the thin layer of frosty ice on the windscreen.  Unfortunately you don't get the chance to find this out because when you turn on the car you get barely more than half a crank out of the engine, then nothing.  This wintertime scenario is all too frequently played out at the most inconvenient times - the car's battery is dead flat! Read more...
