If you’re looking for how to jump-start your 2015 Acura MDX, you’ve come to the right place! You’ll need a set of jumper cables and a power source—either a portable battery or another vehicle. Once you’ve got both on hand, follow these steps:
  • Make sure your car’s engine is off, including any power to electric devices like lights or audio
  • Pop the hood and remove the engine cover from the pins by pulling up
  • Connect one of your jumper cables to your booster battery’s positive terminal
  • Connect your second jumper cable to your booster battery’s negative terminal
  • Use the other end of your second jumper cable to connect to the engine hanger
  • If you’re using another vehicle as a power source, start the other car and gently step on the gas pedal to slightly increase its rpm
  • At this point, you should try starting your Acura’s engine
If everything is connected properly, your car’s engine should turn over in a try or two! If it seems the engine is turning over slowly, double-check your jumper cables to ensure they’re connected properly.
