Jump starting your car

Hoist Towing and Recovery is your 24 hour roadside assistance service in Prescott and can help jump start your vehicle.Who thinks about their car battery? No one, until it's dead and, by then, you've got plenty of time to think about it because you aren't going anywhere. If you drive a stick shift, you can usually get your car rolling a little bit and then pop the clutch. Voila! But, most people drive automatics and have to rely on a jump start to get them going again. To help keep you from getting stranded, Hoist Towing and Recovery advises Prescott drivers to watch for these signs of a potentially dying battery.

Batteries have a relatively predictable life cycle of five years. Today, anyone driving a 2014-2015 vehicle with the original battery may want to consider replacing the battery as part of your preventative maintenance. However, if you notice any of the following conditions you may have a battery that needs replacing now.

Slow Engine Turnover:
When you attempt to start the vehicle and cranking your car's engine is sluggish and takes longer than it normally does to start.

Check Engine Light:
Sometimes the “check engine” light will illuminate when the battery power is weak.

Low Battery Fluid Level:
If your car battery casing is translucent you can visually inspect the battery’s fluid level. If the fluid level is lower than the lead plates, it’s time to replace the battery.

Swollen Battery Case:
Excessive heat can cause the battery case to expand which will decrease your battery life.

Battery Leak:
Battery fluid is corrosive. Any leaking battery fluid can corrode the charging posts.

Age:
Car batteries often last more than three years, but the three-year mark is a good time to begin having your battery's condition inspected annually.

Hoist Towing & Recovery hopes Prescott drivers don't find themselves stranded in cold or rainy winter weather especially with temperatures dropping so low in the evenings. But, if your car's battery does fail you and you need a jump start, Hoist Towing and Recovery is standing by to help. Call us today at 928-660-0606.
