Under The Hood- Batteries
James O'Daniel talks about keeping batteries working to keep you on the road!

Happen to you?

You c1 3 get in the car in the morning to take off to work, but your car just won't start.

Here's the problem.

A dead battery.

A dead battery may be caused by something as simple as just a light or a door ajar that's been left overnight.

This will easily drain your battery down and give you potential problems in the morning.

An easy solution is to pop the hood, jump the car off at the battery, and just let it run and charged for a few minutes.

Once you know that it's charged after a while, then you can check for interior lights, maybe in a glove box, or a back door open, or an interior overhead light on.

If you know you haven't left the door ajar or a light on, a bonehead mistake easily done, maybe you just have a bad battery and it's time to get it checked.

A typical battery's lifespan is three to five years, depending on the driving conditions.

If you're unsure of your battery's date, inspect the battery for a manufacturer's date.

A good tip is, when you replace your battery, if it doesn't already have a date on it, write it on the battery, or even on a piece of tape and stick it directly to the top of the battery so you can always check it and remember when you installed it last.

If you're unsure of your battery's age, you can always have it professionally checked.

It's better to be safe than sorry so you can be on the road when you need to be.

I'm james with s&s tire, and that's your tip of the day from under the hood.

Speaker 2: now at s&s tire, but four continental or general tires and get four free oil changes.
