Learning the Right Way to Charging a Car Battery

In a continued effort to help motorists get the most value out of their automobile investment, the crew here at Alderson European Motors Lubbock enjoy passing along tips on maintaining your vehicle.

To charge a weak car battery, it is first important to know where the positive and negative sides of the battery are located. Remove any plastic covering on the terminals so you can clearly see the plus or minus sides on the battery.

Once you locate those markings, be sure the battery charger is not yet plugged in or powered on. Place the red battery cable, which will be the positive end, on the side of your car battery that has the marking of plus.

Now the other cable, the black one, needs to be properly secured to the minus side of the car battery. Plug in and power on your battery charger and allow to run until the voltage is back to normal.
