In order to jump start a vehicle one will require jumper cables. The cables are then attached with the red cable being clamped onto the positive terminal of the car with the dead battery and the car that is providing the boost. The black clamp is placed on the negative terminal of the car that is boosting and the other end is connected to any unpainted metal surface in the engine compartment of the dead car. The car providing the boost is then started and once the boosting car is started one can start the vehicle needing the boost. Leave the vehicle running and disconnect the cables.

Jump start it from another vehicle or charge the battery. If the battery is bad, replace it. If you jump start it and the battery is dead you will have to wait about 15 minutes with the jump car running and connected to the dead battery, in order to build the battery up enough for it to actually take a jump.

How do you bypass a starter to start a car?

You typically can't bypass the starter - that is, after all, what actually turns the engine over to start the vehicle. If you have a manual shift vehicle, it is possible to roll start the vehicle. The key needs to be in the on position. You would roll the vehicle while it's in neutral, jump in, and shift it into gear.
