Winter is around the corner and with that comes some car maintenance we need to look at...
Your Car Battery
Cold weather can wreak havoc on almost all machinery including car batteries. This is why it’s important to make sure you’re adequately prepared for the winter season.
Test Your Battery
The first step towards protecting your car battery during winter is by having it tested. we recommend you change your car battery every three years
Keep Your Battery Warm
Just like humans, car batteries need warmth to remain healthy during the winter months. Keep your car parked in your garage if possible
Take Your Time
When starting your car on a cold morning, turn off the lights, radio and air conditioner and leave your car run for a little while to get all the lubricants and parts working well. All of these place extra strain on the battery.
Clean Up Your Car
Clean Engine Bay Grime, dirt, and corrosion on battery terminals contributes to electrical resistance. So make sure to keep your engine bay clean.
If your vehicle won’t kick into life after fifteen to twenty seconds turning the ignition, stop and rest before trying again.
If your car still won’t start, check the battery terminals. Clean and tighten the connections then try again. It’s possible your battery connections are simply loose. So cleaning or tightening will fix the problem.
In winter you do not want to find yourself stranded with a battery that struggles to start your engine. Do what you can to protect your car battery during these cold months.
At the very least, be proactive and have your battery tested before winter hits.
