SafetyRestore’s Airbag Module Reset Services – Nationwide Mail-in Order Service

Most drivers have experienced the dread of a dead battery. Batteries always seem to die at the worst times, such as on a cold morning before work. Dead batteries are a nuisance to drivers; however, drivers can take steps to promote the longevity of their batteries.

First, drivers should always check their batteries when weather changes. Extreme temperatures damage batteries in different ways. Cold air thickens engine oil, and this oil becomes harder to move and turn. While cold is harmful to the battery, heat will also do damage. Extreme heat causes fluids to vaporize and evaporate. As a result, the internal structure of the battery becomes damaged. Thus, whenever the temperature changes drastically, drivers should be prepared to check on their batteries. In addition, drivers should be sure not to overcharge their batteries. Overcharging can also affect the longevity of your battery. If there is a defect with a part of the charging system’s voltage regulator, charging can occur at a rate that is too high. The result of this is a battery that dies slowly.

Furthermore, there are simple things drivers can do to attempt to promote the life of their batteries. Whenever you charge your battery, check to make sure the electrical system is functioning at the appropriate rate. If you have a battery which needs to be topped off routinely, build these checks into your schedule so you do not forget. You may also consider adding distilled water when it is needed. When it comes time to replace your battery, it should be replaced with one that is rated as high as the original one. If the lights on your vehicle become increasingly dim (headlights, interior lights), you likely need to check your battery. The same goes if the check engine light comes on. Finally, keeping your battery clean increases battery life. Debris and dirt become conductors when they get into the battery, and drain battery power and lead to corrosion, which prevents flow.

Seatbelt Retractor Repair
Safety Restore’s seat belt retractor repair is the best in the industry.

With winter season approaching, drivers need to begin thinking about winterizing their vehicles to deal with the onslaught of cold temperatures, black ice and, of course, snow! The winter is especially hard on vehicles, but by winterizing you vehicle, you can limit potential damage to your car and ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers. Follow these six steps to winterize your vehicle.

Check your battery: cold weather is brutal on a vehicle’s battery. Make sure your battery does not need to be replaced. You can have a mechanic check your battery. Even if your battery does not need to be replaced, a mechanic and clean up any corrosion on the connections and posts of it.

Maintain your windshield wipers and wiper fluid: Make sure you have plenty of wiper fluid and that your windshield wipers do not need to be replaced. You can also find windshield wiper fluid that has a lower freezing temperature. Malfunctioning or frayed windshield wipers should be replaced as soon as possible.

Get snow tires: if the roads you drive daily are snow covered on an on-going basis, you may consider getting snow tires, which provide more traction. With softer rubber than your typical all-season tires, these tires maintain flexibility in colder temperatures. They also have grooved patterns that can grip snow and ice. Whether you drive on all-season tires or snow tires, you should ensure proper tire pressure. Air pressure in tires drops in cold weather. Generally, 1psi is lost for every 10 degree drop in temperature.

Check your anti-freeze: make sure your anti-freeze and water mixture is at about 50:50 in order to hinder any coolant from freezing in your radiator. Auto stores typically carry inexpensive anti-freeze testers, which you can use to test the mixture yourself.

Use a thinner oil: you may consider switching to a thinner oil. Oil is used as a lubricant in your engine. During the winter season, cold temperatures result in thicker oil, which impacts lubrication ability. By switching to a thinner oil, you can keep the effectiveness of the oil.

Maintain your vehicle’s safety: if you need maintenance on your car, including seat belt retractor repair, be sure to do it before the winter time. Maintaining safety is always important, but especially so when driving on slick roads in the winter season.
