Chrysler Colt/Vista 1990-1993 Repair Information

PUSHING AND TOWING

Print

Manual transmission equipped cars may be started by pushing, in the event of a dead battery. Ensure that the push car bumper doesn't override the bumper of your car. Depress the clutch pedal. Select Second or Third gear. Switch the ignition ON. When the car reaches a speed of approximately 10 mph, release the clutch to start the engine.


CAUTION
Do not attempt to push start in an automatic transmission equipped car.

Front Wheel Drive cars should be flat-bedded, or towed with the front wheels off of the ground.
