Jump Start a Vehicle
Make sure to check to see if there is a clear path for your vehicle to go safely.
Place the tire pressure gauge in the air opening
of the tire. Then, push the gauge into the tire. The pressure will push out the end piece (that determines what the pressure of the tire is).
Make sure there are no visible damages
on your vehicle.
The registration is proof that your vehicle is inspected. This also shows the date that the vehicle was inspected.
The inspection stickers show
that your vehicle passed all
The numbers represent when
the sticker expires; this is when
you would need to go and get it
inspected again
In some cars, there is a control
that will move the seat forward
or backwards; closer to the
steering wheel or farther away.
Some cars also have a button
that will adjust the seating angle.
Make sure that you adjust the
head restraint to leveled with
you ear.
To move the head restraint up or down,
you need to push the button inward and
pull the head restraint the direction you
want it to go; either up or down.
To adjust the steering wheel, you will
need to pull the lever. Once you have
the steering wheel at the position you
want it to be at, let go of the lever.
There are two ways you can adjust your
mirrors: manually and automatically.
Either way, you would start by selecting
the mirror that you want to adjust.
Then, you would use the arrows to adjust
the direction that you want the mirror to go in.
Indicates the speed in mph
and kmh
Indicates the amount of gas
left in the fuel tank
1.) Make sure the battery is the problem

2.) Open the car's hood

3.) Park the working car near the disabled car

4.) Put on safety gear (goggles and gloves) if you have it

5.) Untangle and unwind your jumper cables

6.) Connect the jumper cables in the order described here:

7.) Start the working car

8.) Try to start the disabled vehicle

9.) Remove the jumper cables once the car starts

10.) Keep the recently disabled car's engine running
Indicates the temperature of the
engine coolant
Indicates how many rotations per minute (rpm)
your wheel is turning.
Indicates the amount of miles that your
vehicle has traveled
monitors the health of the charging system so you have a warning if there is a problem
indicates a low or high level of oil
the warning light comes on when the high beams are turned on
used to keep the vehicle stationary, also known as an emergency brake; parking brake operates mostly on the rear wheels
a flashing light to show a change in lanes or a turn
light turns on when sensors indicate a wheel that is spinning faster than any others; brakes are automatically applied to that wheel
the light alerts the driver if there is any problem with the airbag system
this light means the ABS system has been deactivated by a self-diagnosed fault; a wheel could "lock up" when applying the brakes, allowing the vehicle to "go into a spin"
the light indicates a malfunction in the electronic-control system that it can't correct
reminds the driver that the next periodic service is due; the light indicates that the engine management system has detected a fault which effects efficiency and safety
also known as "hazard lights", the emergency flashers are turned on by a red triangle button,
either on the dashboard or steering column;
When turned on it flashes the front lights and rear tail lights constantly
near the gear shifter there will be dials and knobs to cool and heat the vehicle, there will also be a button that will vent the car
on a cold day the windshield might fog up, so turn the defrosters on to blow warm air onto the window to clear it up
wipers that will clear the water off the windshield when it is either drizzling or pouring, there is also different speeds for the wipers depending on the rain
cleans the windshield
these lights are located usually on the ceiling of all cars; there will be one set in the front, a set in the back seats, and sometimes one in the way back
around the gear shifter there will be a
Outlets located in the front or the middle of
the car. These can be used for charging electronic devices or syncing a MP3 player to
the car.
Emergency brake that is used to keep
the vehicle in place.
Buttons used to adjust the windows
A button that is pressed to open the trunk.

1.) Look at the side door on the drivers side and
it should tell you what the standard tire pressure for your vehicle is.
2.) Unscrew the stern cap from the valve on
the tire and take it off.
3.) Place the air pressure gauge onto the valve and push it into the valve and that should give you the air pressure
4.) After, check to see if your tires have the
correct amount of pressure. Then, place the stern cap back on.
1.) Place a penny upside down along
multiple tread grooves across the tire.
2.) If Lincoln's head is covered
by the tread, then the treads are
legally worn out.
Connect one red clamp to the positive (+) terminal of the dead battery.
Connect the other red clamp to the positive (+) terminal of the good battery.
Connect one black clamp to the negative (-) terminal of the good battery.
Connect the other black clamp to a piece of grounded metal on the dead car
Make sure none of the cables are dangling into the engine compartment, where they could be exposed to moving parts.
