At low temperatures other problems arise. Severe frosts can make starting the engine difficult, requiring multiple starts when turning the ignition key.
Sometimes drivers are faced with the choice of simply leaving the car and calling a taxi, since they cannot start the engine on their own. However, experts have identified four effective ways to solve the problem even in the most difficult situations.
The first way is to “light” the battery, which requires asking another driver for help and using special wires with grips.
The second option is to place the battery in a warm room, after making sure that no one is nearby, in order to avoid the negative effects of fumes on health.
The third method is to use a booster, however, loud noises may occur, which can be eliminated using a quick start aerosol.
Another solution is to push the car, although this method is not suitable for cars with an automatic transmission.
