Tire puncture can be commonly observed now-a-days. Car jack comes with vehicles requires users to apply manual force to lift a vehicle. This paper is targeted to analyze the development in existing scissor car jack in order to make load lifting easier by utilizing Car battery (12V) which can be used in emergency situations. In this design, the cigarette lighter receptacle point is connected in car, which drives the power from the car battery (12V), this will run the DC motor and thus connected power screw is rotated. By this, the car jack will lift the vehicle. The contractions or expansion movement of car jack can be controlled by a joystick as per requirements. This modified car jack can be easily operated by any person and it saves time, hence reduce wastage of human efforts and time. The design of this car jack is being developed in Solid Works 2010 software. Manufacturing and fabrication work have been done using milling, drilling, grinding and threading machines. The modified car jack is tested and implementing of design can solve ergonomics problems.
