You’re walking out of your apartment and notice a good looking girl with the hood of her car open, looking at the engine with desperation. You go over and ask what’s wrong. You go inside her car and try to ignite but to no avail, the engine is hardly cranking, electronics are not working, yeap, the car battery is dead for good. She’s late for work and wondering whether if you can give her jump. You look down at the ground, kick some sand, and offer to call MAA instead.
You have no clue how to jump start a car. Wimp.
Luckily, I haven't been in such situation before, but I have my fair share of experience of looking like an idiot for not knowing how to jump starting a car, worse, it happened last week at a parking site, I was standing in the rain, have no spare jumping cables and Malaysians are well known for not offering help to stranger, I was looking hopelessly and waiting for help from my friends. This experience sucks. I believe there are other people who have no idea of jump starting a car. So I'll dedicate this post as my 1st ever idiot's guide to jump starting a car.
