Does My Insurance Cover Lockout and Battery Service?

Car Battery Service Tips
Dead car batteries can be a pain. Maintain your battery properly to prevent problems from arising. Here are a few tips to improve your car battery’s longevity:
- Keep it clean; be sure the terminals are free from corrosion and buildup that could block or interfere with the electrical current.
- Consider wrapping your car battery with an insulated battery blanket to protect it against exposure during extreme hot and cold weather.
- Before you jumpstart your car in cold weather, warm up the battery by taking it out and bringing it indoors. A warm battery is much easier to jumpstart.
