Charging a car battery is not as easy as some might think. Dodge City Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram wants you to do it the right way to keep your battery and yourself safe.

How to Charge the Battery

Driving around Saskatoon can drain your battery overtime. If this ever happens, you can charge it with the following steps:

1. Start by putting on a mask and protective gloves because you might be handling battery acid.

2. Turn your car off, making sure everything inside is off, like lights. Let your car cool down if you were driving it.

3. Remove the battery using the necessary tools, which depends on your car. Be sure to start with the negative (-) or ground cable, and then move on to the positive (+) cable.

4. Clean the terminals using a mixture of water and baking soda. Do not let the battery acid come in contact with your skin.

5. Remove the car battery, and see if it needs water though most car batteries are self-maintaining.

6. Plug your charger up to your car battery, making sure you match the negative cable with the negative terminal and the positive cable with the positive terminal.

7. Use the charger's instructions to charge your car battery. Turn off the charger before removing the charged battery, starting with the positive cable and then the negative.

8. Put your car battery back where it belongs.

Hopefully, these steps are easy enough for you, but you can talk to a professional if you want.
