How to stay safe and avoid a breakdown this winter - Batteries and electrics

February 26, 2018




Car batteries rarely last longer than five years, and there are extra demands on them in the winter, thanks to lights, heating and wipers.


  • Turn off electrical loads like lights, heated rear window and wipers before trying to start the engine.

  • Use the starter in short five-second bursts.

  • If the engine doesn't start quickly, wait 30 seconds between attempts.

  • If you don't use your car often, give it a regular overnight trickle charge.
