Changing temperatures and vibration can loosen claps. Locate your battery and twist the clamps to see if they are loose. If they are, tighten the clamps and attempt to start your vehicle.
Dirty or corroded terminals can cause excessive resistance, and ultimately a slow or no start. Clean your terminals using a brush, gloves, and safety glasses. Don’t let that snow-like dust contact your skin or clothes; it’s corrosive and can burn your skin and ruin your favorite pants.
Test and Replace
Contact AAA to have a AAA Battery Service Technician come out and test your battery, starting, and charging system. If your battery fails, our technicians have stock on their service trucks to replace your battery quickly—and they’ll recycle the old one for you.
