HOW TO START YOUR CAR WHICH HAS A FLAT BATTERY
Heave ho! - If the battery isn’t completely flat (aka dead), jerk-start it by engaging a gear and getting a friend to push.
Blue-Green Goo - If there is oxidation — a greenish crust — on the battery terminals, disconnect and clean them, reconnect and coat with petroleum jelly.
Positive Work - After reinstalling, ensure that the positive terminal insulation is put back in place.
Water Power - Check the electrolyte level in the batteries — if the cells are dry, refill with
distilled water and then check the electrolyte level again.
Auto Bug - If your car has auto transmission, a jerk-start won’t work — you need to jump-start it, by connecting to another battery.
Hot wire - Use jumper cables to jump-start the car by connecting your battery to that of another car.
Kow-tow - If there is another car, but no jumper cables, be nice and you may get a tow to a battery shop.
Call the Medics - If all else fails, ask a battery company, like Exide, to send a jump-start team.
