LOCKOUTS - We recommend a combination of the BIG EASY (Bar, Wedge, Inflatable Wedge, Door Protector) and the Access Tools Black Lasso - There are several lockout kits available on the market, however a "Slim Jim" cannot be used on todays vehicles so you will need something comparable to our recommendation.

Why is my battery is dead.....
Batteries are fairly short life and are affected by daily habits, weather, and age. Batteries will last anywhere from 2-5 years and they can fail with no notice. You say that your mechanic tested your battery last week and it was good? Well, last week on Wednesday, it was good. This week on Tuesday it is no longer good.
- Batteries are affected by your driving habits - Driving short distances and shutting off your car and restarting it to drive a short distance and repeating this shortens the life of the battery (Just running to the store and back)
- Listening to your radio with the car off - leaving headlights on - alarm system activation
- Letting your car sit for extended periods with the battery hooked up shortens the life (Vacations) Your car is designed with several things that require constant power when the vehicle is off
- Temperature extremes - One day it's 45 degree's and the next night it's 4 degree's
- Poor performing alternator - this charges your battery and if it's not performing correctly your battery will suffer
- Push Button START vehicles - key too close to the vehicle overnight - If your key fob is left in a location that is to close to the vehicle, the vehicle and fob communicate all night long
- Improper maintenance - Batteries need TLC, or at least a good cleaning. Corrosion develops on the terminals of the battery and cause poor connections. Corrosion should be cleaned off by your mechanic and if this isn't being done, it can ruin your battery and even worse your wiring that goes to the battery. The battery is wet on the top, between the terminals. This causes a minor short as any wetness will conduct electrical current. This can be caused by damp weather and temperature changes.
Do I need a new battery.....
If your battery requires more than an occasional jump start or tests poorly, then yes you need a new battery. If this is the first time your battery has needed a jump start or tests good, then you don't necessarily need to run right out and replace it. However, it is always good to have your battery tested by your mechanic following a jump start.
Can a jump start damage my car.....
This really depends on your car and the car performing the jump start. Some manufactures do not recommend that a jump start is performed for any reason on their cars due to the electronics in newer vehicles. Some require that the battery is disconnected, the battery is charged, reconnected and then you may start your vehicle. Our skilled technicians are familiar with the recommendations. We will not under any circumstance, jump start a car with jumper cables. We only use safe start jump packs that are compatible with ALL makes and models to avoid any surges in power and incorrect cable placement. Our portable jump packs will not turn on if the cables are not connected properly or if an electrical short is detected within your vehicles electrical system. They provide a steady, regulated current to your electrical system allowing for the safe starting of your vehicle.
*It is not recommended that you allow someone with jumper cables to jump start your vehicle. The end result may be very pricey repairs to your electrical system if not done properly. The damage may not be noticed right away and your auto insurance will not cover the cost.
We already tried to jump start my car and it didn't work.....
We already attempted to jump start my car from another vehicle, why would you be able to start my car if we couldn't? We specialize in performing jump starts using the latest in technology that is superior to the "old fashioned" jumper cables. Some of the reasons jumper cables don't necessarily work on today's cars are:
- Poor connection to grounds
- Cable sized is inadequate (cables come in many sizes and lengths)
- Vehicle supplying power is undersized (using a small car to jump a big truck)
- Didn't leave the cables on long enough before trying to start the car
- Your battery is not the problem
You jump started my vehicle now what.....
We recommend that you let your vehicle run for 45 minutes to charge your battery. We didn't charge your battery, we just got your car started and batteries take time to charge. You may drive your vehicle, but don't shut it off. Once the vehicle is running our technicians will know if your alternator is putting out the required 13.4-15volts to charge the battery and supply your electrical components properly. The vehicle should run off the alternator once it is started. You should take your vehicle in to the mechanic and have your battery tested following a jump start to ensure that your vehicle will restart once you shut it off. We cannot guarantee that it will restart following the jump start, but if you let it run for the 45 minutes it should restart.
The service was unsuccessful, now what.....
We try our best to assist every customer by jump starting their vehicle, however not every customers jump start will be successful for one reason or another. Some common reasons a jump start will not work are:
- Bad starter - resembles the need for a jump start
- Electrical issues with the vehicle
- Bad relay or fuses
- Bad neutral safety switch (if your vehicle doesn't start, you have bright lights and everything comes on but you hear no click when you try to start it then try starting your car in neutral. If the car starts, then your neutral safety switch is bad and needs to be replaced. You can still drive the car, but you will have to start it in neutral.)
- ***EXTREME COLD*** This goes along with lack of proper maintenance and neglect of the vehicle. If you got behind on oil changes, the oil becomes thick and when the extreme cold hits, you are stuck until the engine warms up on it own. The thick oil will keep the engine from turning over and may cause extensive damage to the starter and electrical system if you continue your attempts at starting it. Vehicles with this issue need to sit inside a heated location or sit outside until the temperature rises and the oil thins out on it's own.
When the service is unsuccessful, your day goes from bad to worse and we get that, so we don't charge you for the unsuccessful service. We will also help you locate a reputable towing company and repair facility, that is properly licensed and insured, in your area.
