Carmichael Jumpstart Service
Whether you drive a 2022 Cayman GT4 or a 1967 GTO, a dead battery isn’t going to get you anywhere. It’s likely you’re familiar with that soulless “click-click-click” sound that comes from a flat power source.
Sacramento County drivers need not worry about this type of thing, because they have Carmichael Towing Service right here waiting to help. We provide emergency towing and roadside assistance services, and one of these is our Jumpstart Service.
Flat batteries are a common occurrence, and we’re always on hand to help. We’ll come to your location, test your battery, and if it’s found to be flat, we’ll jumpstart it using our high-powered equipment. We’ll also check your alternator and starter motor to ensure they’re working as they should be.
What are the Signs of a Dead Battery?
There are a few tell-tale signs that indicate your battery may be flat, and these include:
- Your car won’t start (click-click-click)
- The headlights are dim
- The engine is slow to turn over
I used to drive a 1965 MGB, and when that baby’s battery died–which was often–the headlights would fade to orange, go black, and the engine would cut off. After that, I had to coast her to the side of the road.
This was in Ohio. Out here in California, you have Carmichael Towing Company to rush to your aid. Me? I had started pushing.
What Causes a Dead Battery?
Batteries can die for a number of reasons, but the most common cause is simply ageing. Batteries have a limited lifespan, and as they get older, their performance will degrade.
Other causes include leaving lights on overnight or using high-powered electrical accessories such as heaters or stereos. If you live in a cold climate, your battery may also be affected by the cold weather.
How Can I Prevent My Battery From Dying?
The best way to prevent your battery from dying is to have it regularly serviced by a qualified mechanic. They will be able to clean and tighten the connections and test the battery to ensure it’s in good condition.
You should also avoid leaving lights on overnight, or using high-powered electrical accessories when the engine is off. If you live in a cold climate, it’s a good idea to invest in a battery blanket or charger.
If you do find yourself with a flat battery, Carmichael Towing Service is here to help. We’ll jumpstart your car and get you back on the road in no time. Give us a call today!
What is Your Jumpstart Process?
At Carmichael Towing Company, our jumpstart process is simple and straightforward. We’ll come to your location, test your battery, and if it’s found to be flat, we’ll hook it up to a strong power source. The battery will “vampire” some juice to give your car a spark. Then we’ll run a test on your charging system to make certain that isn’t the culprit. If the charging system is good, it may be time to swap out the battery.
Carmichael Towing Company’s jumpstart service is second to none on the playing field. When it comes to roadside assistance, we know how to get you up and running again in no time.
