Jumpstarting an automatic car is an easy way to start it up whenever you want. All you have to do is follow the instructions and it will work!
It only takes a few minutes to go back through the manual and check that it has the correct instruction for your vehicle. Once it does, this trick works every time!
There are two ways to jumpstart an automatic car. The first is through the use of a jumper cables. The second is through the use of a gasoline canister. Both of these require some knowledge of your auto, though.
The gas canister method requires that you be aware of your safety net or emergency braking system. The other uses just a standard set of jumper cables.
Hold the throttle open
When you need to jumpstart your car, the most important step is to hold the throttle open. This means you have to remove your hands from the wheel to do this.
Most systems that jumpstart a car use a cable or wire to connect the accelerator and battery. When this connection breaks, the system doesn’t start up correctly.
If you don’t have a cable or wire, you can still start your car by holding the brake pedal open awhile. This takes a little practice and time to get used to, but it is possible.
You can do it! Just make sure you are careful not to hurt yourself or break your car! You want to be able to hold your brakes and move around with your arms and shoulders while doing this.
Make sure there is nothing under the car
If the car has a motor, make sure the batteries are charged and that the starter is working.
If the car has a manual transmission, make sure the tachometer is functioning. If you have a speedometer, check that it is working as well.
If none of these features qualify as features, then there must be something wrong. If you can smell anything electrical or feel any resistance, there may be an issue.
Most cars have diagnostic software built into them, and if your car does not have it, you can download one for free from the manufacturer’s website or through the car’s app.
Push the car slightly forward
Now, put the car in neutral, hold the brake pedal down, and lightly touch the engine start button on the steering wheel.
This action makes the starter motor engage and starts the engine. You are now ready to charge your battery!
Now that you have charged your battery, you can drive! Drive slowly so that the battery has a chance to charge. If you need to go faster, then increase charging speeden– cement mentioned above.
Drive with care to be sure your battery has enough charge left to drive your car for an extended period of time. If you feel like it is dying quickly, look at your charger to see that it is charging at a fast rate! This is to ensure safe and secure charging of your battery.
Make sure the parking brake is on
If your car has a parking brake, you must make sure it is set to the floor or ground. If the brake is up, the car will automatically escape from its parking position when the driver presses on the brakes.
To make this procedure, you must first remove the steering wheel and then pull off the top of the steering column until it comes loose. Then you can remove the bottom of the column until you can pull off the top.
Once you have these steps in place, you can start jumpingstarting your car! First, find your fusebox and look for a wire that leads to your battery. You should see a bright line of electricity coming from there.
Put it in neutral
If you’re trying to start your car by capping the gas, you may need to put it in neutral first. This prevents your car from rolling away as the power is applied.
This is usually done by holding down the acceleration or brake pedal at the same time while starting the car. Once it starts, let go of both pedals and wait for them to settle before starting again.
This is done so the electrical system does not burn up when the power is applied. If this happens, you cannot start your car and could be stranded. You can call a mechanic or a Jumpstart service company if you are unable to start your car on your own.

Set the gear to first or second depending on how fast you want to take off
This mechanism is called a first or second gear. When you turn the steering wheel from left to right, the car becomes more difficult to control. This is called a deadlock.
When second gear is selected, the car will still turn when you drive at low speeds or when you increase speed. When you drive at high speeds, your speed must be increased by another gear or two.
If you have first or second gears, it is best to have them set to first so that the car will take off with ease. Setting them in second will increase safety as the car can easily roll over if it gets stuck in a corner.
Turn on the automatic shift mode
Once you have the car started, the first step is to verify that it is in automatic shift mode.
If the car requires you to manually turn it on and off, then did, then CONTINUE! This will purge the O2 sensor and start start start the car. If it does not require this, then continue reading!
If it does require you to manually turn it on and off, do so! Once done, check and make sure your filters are clean and tight. If there are any leaks or gaps, excess O2 or anything else that needs purging, do so again!

Press and hold the button to go forward until you are moving
Once you have done that, release the button to go back. This will bring your vehicle back to stop.
To start the jumpstart process, you must hold down the button for at least five seconds. After that, you can release the button to start the jumpstart process.
The jumpstart takes around five minutes to do, and then your car will start up and drive normally! During this time your fuel level must be full so that it takes enough energy to power up your car. If it starts out empty, look for a source of electricity or something to charge the battery with.
After this is through, put in a charging pad or cable so that your car can connect up to it.
