One of the things that you need to be careful with when it comes to jumping a vehicle is where you touch the clamps of the cables. Putting the metal clamps of the cables in the wrong spot can cause a violent reaction. This is why it is important to be careful when jumping a vehicle.

One precaution that you need to take is attaching one end of the negative cable to the negative terminal of the good battery. At this point the cables go live. This is where you have to be careful. You want to attach the other end of the cable away from any moving parts to avoid sparks.

Once all of the cables are connected in the right spots, then you want to make sure that everyone is away from the engine so that they can avoid any unfortunate accidents from the jump start.
