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.

Tips

  • 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.
