“Ensure your car battery is properly charged

Extreme temperatures break down car batteries internally and can accelerate the rate of corrosion on battery terminals. This causes insufficient electrical power and the risk of being stranded without warning. At every oil change, check the battery cables; ensure they’re securely attached to the terminals. If there are signs of corrosion, clean them with a baking soda paste. The best way to remove external corrosion is to disconnect the cables to clean the hidden areas where they contact the battery terminals. Most car batteries have a three-to-five-year service life, depending on local climate and vehicle use. If your battery is getting old, have it tested at AAA Approved Auto Repair shop or by using AAA Mobile Battery Service to determine if it needs to be replaced.” To read the entire article click here.
