Why does one headlight keep going out?

If you have one headlight that repeatedly goes out you may have an issue with the socket or in the wiring to the headlight causing the issue. Especially right now in winter when it's dark when you leave for work and dark when you get home it's so important to be able to see where you are going and to be seen on those foggy mornings. Give us a call and we will get your car operating safely again.  Happy Adventures,  Heather

Shop Small Business Saturday

I know today is black Friday and that itself has become a national holiday, but with all of that please remember to shop at the local stores in your town. They are small businesses trying to provide for there families, they work long hours with very little reward other than to know they are making a difference in the lives of the people who they employ and to there children. We are a small business too and sometimes people forget.  Please remember to shop small and support that local family who is doing their best to make a difference. Happy Adventures,  Heather

Why do I have a tire pressure light?

Why do I have a tire pressure light?

Your tire pressure light lets you know when your tire pressure is low to prevent a blow out when you're driving down the highway. It also prevents tire damage from driving on tires that do not have enough pressure in them.  If that light comes on it's best to have it checked as soon as you can. Happy Adventures Heather

There is a battery light on? What is it?

There is a battery light on? What is it?

That is your battery warning light and it should be a picture of a batter and it should be red. This sign is an indication that the battery in your car is having an issue, and may not be charging anymore.  If you spot this while driving, the first thing to do is to turn off all electrical components in your car. This includes the air conditioning, heating, stereo, interior lighting, seat heaters/coolers. Don't switch off the headlights if you are driving at night, but if you are driving during the day turn off the day time running lights.  If at all possible stop by and we will help you resolve this issue before it causes more trouble.  Happy Adventures Heather

What is the oil can icon on the dash for?

What is the oil can icon on the dash for?

  That is your engine oil pressure light, it should look like an oil pitcher and it will be red. If that ever comes on when you are driving please pull over, it can mean that your engine is low on oil and if you were to keep driving it could cause major damage to your engine. It doesn't always mean that it is low on oil or that there is an issue, but it is best to treat it that way just to be safe.  So, if you spot that light on your dash while you are driving, pull over, turn off the engine and call for a professional to help.

My left turn signal is blinking faster than the right. Why?

My left turn signal is blinking faster than the right. Why?

Typically when one side is blinking faster than the other it means that you have a bulb that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. If the bulb has been replaced recently then it is probably the socket which the bulb goes into that has an issue.  We always have the most common bulbs on had for just a time like this, stop by and we can make sure you're safe on the road.
