This #diy video shows how to #jump start the battery on a riding lawn #mower .
If your battery is dead, you may need to use jumper cables to get it going. Batteries can be dangerous if you handle them incorrectly, so we show you how to jump-start your mower’s battery safely so you can get back to mowing.
First, connect one end of the red jumper cable to the positive terminal on the mower battery. Connect the other end of the red cable to the vehicle’s positive battery terminal. Don’t let the other end of the red cable touch any metal. You’ll see a lot of sparks and could damage the good battery. Next, connect the black jumper cable to the vehicle’s negative battery terminal. Then connect the other end of the black jumper cable to the metal mower frame away from the fuel tank and battery. Turn the ignition key and start the mower engine. Now disconnect the jumper cables— in the right order. Disconnect the black cable from the mower frame first and then disconnect the black cable from the vehicle’s battery. Next, disconnect the red cable from the vehicle’s battery and then disconnect the red cable from the mower’s battery.
