Using A Rope To Start A Car With A Dead Battery

Car battery dead, no jumper cables, to be prepared in case the worst happens, our new life hack presenter Denny from the YouTube channel Shake The Future shows us an interesting way to start a car when there’s not a jumper cable or good samaritan in sight.

In this video, I demonstrate a way to start your car (when the battery is dead) without pushing it or using jumper cables.That’s why you should always keep a rope in the car.

This will work the best on petrol cars. I did try it on diesel, but it did not work.Your car needs to have a manual transmission.My brother told me that he saw my dad doing it, so I decided to try it out.


You are suppose to jack up the front wheel (on a front wheel drive car) and put the car in the 3rd gear.Wrap the rope around the wheel and pull it.If you’re lucky (and strong), the car will start. Hopefully you never reach this situation. This is done by a proffesional, make sure not to try this at home.
