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.

Like batteries, airbags are essential to vehicles. If your vehicle requires airbag module reset, you cannot procrastinate fixing it. SRS Airbag module reset is necessary in vehicles that have been in accidents or impacts. Whether you were in an accident or purchased your vehicle from an auction, Safety Restore can provide airbag chip reset for you.

Does Your Deployed SRS Airbag Module Need to be Reset after an Accident?

Believe it or not, winter is right around the corner. If you are from a part of the country that experiences a harsh winter, you know that this dangerous time can wear out your vehicle. From heavy snow fall to black ice to below zero temperatures, roads in the winter season are riddled with danger. Each year, thousands of drivers end up stranded due to hazardous roads or malfunctioning vehicles, anywhere from short periods of time, to even days. Aside from the typical dangers of being on the road, there is also an increasing danger of hypothermia. Most drivers are not adequately prepared to be stranded, but you can take measures to ensure safety in the event you are stranded in your vehicle during a storm.

First, you should try to keep your vehicle fueled as much as possible in the winter time, especially when taking a long trip. In the event you are stranded, that gas in your tank might be all you have to keep warm for hours, if not days. You can also create a winter emergency kit to leave in your vehicle. Aside from the usual first aid kit, you should include emergency flares, flashlights, a radio, extra batteries, and ice scraper and a bag of sand to help with traction. You will also need to pack items to keep you warm if you are stranded for a length period of time, including: warm blankets, extra gloves, a ski mask to protect your face, extra warm clothing and boots. Make sure the clothing you choose is made of materials that insulate well, such as fleece. Finally, if you have an old cell phone that you no longer use, charge it and keep it in your car. Even if the phone is not connected to any provider, you will still be able to call 911 on it. Alternatively, you can keep a fully charged battery pack and charging cable for your phone.

Part of preparing for the winter season is ensuring your car is safe to drive. If your SRS airbag module has deployed, you likely need to have it repaired or replaced before the winter season. When the airbag module deploys, it became useless and now prevents airbags from deploying in an accident. Thus, there is a great risk to driving a vehicle with the SRS airbag module deployed. Whether you have been in a car accident or purchased a car from an auction, the airbag module should be repaired as soon as possible. While many manufactures and repair shops will suggest you replace the deployed SRS airbag module, Safety Restore repair it for a fraction of the cost, saving you upwards of $1,000! Do not risk driving in the winter season with a SRS airbag module deployed – contact Safety Restore today and get it taken care of before the first snow fall!
