RIDE WITH MAGNUS – Love Edition!

Maintaining Your Ride Electrical System

  • Clean your battery contacts at least twice a year:

The connection heads for your battery can sometimes get corroded or covered in dirt, making it harder for the electrical current to flow through the car’s system.  Use the correct size wrench or sockets and ratchet to loosen the bolts of the negative and positive sides of your battery. 

Ensure that all dirt or anything blocking your battery heads are cleaned or removed.  This might have a negative impact on the use of your ride. 

Strive to tighten these heads firmly back in place, once done.

  • Test your lights and replace any bulbs that have blown out:

You can ask a friend to stand in front of your car while you turn on your headlight low beams and then high beams. Then test the left and right turn signals. Next, ask your friend to move to the back of the car while you test your brake / parking lights and each turn signal once again. 

These lights aid in smoothly travelling and help other road users in making the right decisions as we all drive safely on the roads.

  • Check and replace fuses:

If some lights go out in the interior of your car, chances are good that it’s a blown fuse – located inside the engine compartment for most vehicles.  Locate the appropriate fuse boxes in your car, while trying to change and install new fuses.

The number of amps a fuse can withstand is written on the fuse itself.  Make sure the new fuse has the same number written on it as the blown one you’re replacing.

If you are unable to locate your fuse boxes or they don’t have the diagram, refer to the owner’s manual or contact a quality car technician to assist with these changes.

  • Replace your spark plugs regularly:

Locate the spark plug wires running into the top of the engine. Grasp the wire to and pull it up to unplug it from the spark plug. Use a spark plug socket and a ratchet to unscrew the spark plug and pull it up and out of the engine.

Gap the new spark plug using a spark plug gapping tool. You’ll find the correct gap measurement in the vehicle’s owner’s manual or an application specific repair manual.

This is a more technical and advanced maintenance requirement and it is important to have this down by a professional.  Never leave your old plugs with the Mechanic.  I advise you take this home and dispose as appropriate.
