So the other day I got into my car, switched on the ignition and nothing! I had left the lights on. Now usually it will beep, but obviously the little machine that tells it to beep had broken. After calling many a friend and asking a few people, I realized two things. One - I had no idea how to deal with car trouble and two - I needed to buy jumper cables.
Here is an informative video showing you how to use jumper cables.
Also a rather good thing to know is that most car insurance companies will send someone out.
While we are on the topic, here is how you change a tire.
Watch these once and the knowledge you gain will last a life time. :)
