Start Your Car With a Rope (Dead Battery Life Hack)

If you are the proud owner of a vehicle with a manual transmission, then you might just be familiar with how the concept of a push to start works. Traditionally, if you can’t get your car to turn over, you can throw it in gear, get some of your buddies to give you a nudge, and play with the clutch while the ignition is set to the “on” position, breathing life into the car.

That might work, but what happens if you don’t have the ability to get the car rolling for yourself but you have some other materials on hand? How could you get the car rolling without the aid of forward momentum to pop that clutch and get the car breathing once again?

This time, we check out a video that takes another approach entirely to the original push start method and this time, we throw a jack into the mix. You might want to be careful with this one but if you’re really stranded and have these materials at your disposal, something like this could truly come in handy if you can’t get your car to start otherwise.

Check out the video below that shows the method in action and tell us if this is something that you could ever see yourself using if you are stuck in a sticky situation.
