There are too many variables that can lead to your battery being dead in Greater Dallas, TX and when you discover the situation, you can be frustrated, anxious, or even both. Though you keep a handy pair of jumper cables with you, you might be torn whether to call your roadside assistance and towing company, Citywide Towing, or hope a good Samaritan offers you a jump. Soliciting a stranger for help can be tempting but hiring a professional can be are far better option and we at Citywide Towing would like to explain why.
Safety; Being Stranded with a Dead Car Battery is Dangerous
A dangerous situation in itself, being stranded somewhere with a dead battery is something no one wants to deal with. Though you may feel grateful for a stranger’s help, you can be in a potentially more dangerous situation. Being told not to talk to strangers is something ingrained in people since childhood and now you need to trust a stranger with your vehicle.
Improperly Jump Starting a Car Can Damage the Vehicle
Despite the stranger having the best of intentions, they may not know how to give a safe and proper jump start to your battery. An older battery could be compromised, the battery posts could also have corrosion, or the cables could be worn. Under any of these conditions, the battery could explode when a jump start is attempted, which will not only cause damage to your vehicle but could potentially cause bodily harm to anyone in close proximity. Ensuring everyone’s safety and to keep your vehicle from possible damage, have the roadside assistance professional give you the jump start. The battery running the risk of explosion isn’t the only damage that could occur with an improper jump start or jump starting a compromised battery. To power on-board features such as navigation devices, backup cameras, airbags and other such accessories, many models manufactured after the year 2000 handle more electronics. A wrong move in the jump start can damage any of these electronic features, leaving with costly repairs.
