Triple-A To Host Local ‘Battery Wellness Clinics’


THE NIGHT, AND THOSE SKIES CLEAR OUT. AND WITH THE COLD MORNINGS COMING, IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR CAR READY FOR THE CHANGE IN SEASONS, IF YOU DO IT NOW, YOU WON’T GET CAUGHT WITH A DEAD BATTERY. CHRISTINE SOUTHERNSON TALKED WITH TRIPLE A ABOUT WHAT WE SHOULD DO TO PREPARE. Reporter: IT DOESN’T TAKE SNOW FOR YOUR CAR TO KNOW IT’S COLD OUT. THE 30-DEGREE FALL MORNINGS CAN DO A DOOZY ON YOUR BATTERY. JIM GARRITY WITH TRIPLE A SAID THEY JUMP-STARTED OR REPLACED 90,000 BATTERIES FROM DECEMBER THROUGH MARCH. BY FAR, THE NUMBER-ONE SERVICE CALL WE GET IS FOR DEAD BATTERIES. Reporter: GARRITY SAID NOW IS THE TIME TO GET YOUR BATTERY CHECKED. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR VEHICLE TO A GARAGE TO GET CHECKED OUT OR TRIPLE A HAS BATTERY WELLNESS CLINICS AT THEIR LOCATIONS AROUND THE REGION STARTING NEXT WEEK. THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER SUN IS ACTUALLY WHAT DOES THE DAMAGE. SO THE HEAT BREAKS DOWN THE INTERNAL COMPONENTS, AND THEN YOU GET TO WINTERTIME, AND THE COLD IS WHAT REALLY BRINGS IN THE DAMAGE FORWARD, AND ALL THE SUNDAY YOU CAN’T TURN THE ENGINE OVER. Reporter: WHILE YOU’RE AT IT, BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR TIRE PRESSURE, WHICH GOES DOWN WITH THE TEMPERATURE AND THE TIRE TREADS. AND BE SURE YOUR WIPER BLADES AND FLUID ARE READY
