The battery is certainly one of the most important power sources in a vehicle, and without which you wouldn’t be able to turn on the AC or blare up some nice tunes, let alone start the car! There are a number of reasons why your battery can die, such as leaving the keys in the ignition, failing to close the car doors properly, leaving the light on for long periods, cold weather or simply because the battery is old and worn-out.
Fortunately, a battery is one of the easiest car components to fix thanks to jumper cables. However, before rushing to conclusions, make sure it is indeed the battery that needs to be fixed and not any other parts so you don’t end up wasting time and energy fiddling with the cables. The trick is to put the key in the ignition. If you don’t see any lights turn on or hear a sound, you are most likely dealing with a dead battery.
