How to Start Car Engine Without Battery

Car engines work by using a battery to start the engine. In some cases, when the battery fails, you may need to start the car engine without it. This article will teach you how to do this.

What You’ll Need

If you’re having trouble starting your car engine, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

-A battery charger and cord
-A spark plug tester or a voltmeter
– jumper cables
-Car battery
-Car key

Once you have these items, follow these steps:

1. Place the battery charger and cord in an accessible location.

2. Connect one end of the charger to the spark plug tester or voltmeter and connect the other end of the charger to the car battery.

3. Turn on the spark plug tester or voltmeter and watch as the reading increases. If the reading is high enough, your car may start without using the battery.

4. If your car still won’t start, try jumpstarting it by connecting one end of each jumper cable to either side of the car battery. Be sure to use a sturdy cord because you’ll be jumping around a lot!

Procedure

In order to start a car engine without battery, you will need to do the following:
-Open the hood of your car
-Find the black wire connected to the battery
-Cut the black wire close to the connector
-Remove the cover from the starter motor
-Attach a jumper cable between the black wire and the red wire coming from the starter motor
-Turn on the ignition switch and wait for the car to start

Tips for Success

If your car battery is dead, you can start the engine without it by using these steps:

1. Open the hood and locate the battery. It may be in a box or mounted to the engine.

2. Pull out the battery and disconnect the cables. If there are multiple cables, make sure to disconnect all of them.

3. Place the battery some distance away from the engine so it doesn’t catch on fire.

4. Turn the key to the “on” position and hold it there for a few seconds until you see the car’s indicator light turn on (you may have to wait a few minutes for this).

5. Carefully move the battery close to the engine and turn the key to the “off” position. Be careful not to let it fall on top of the engine or touch any wires.
