Oakland Park Jumpstart Service
Whether you drive a 2022 Lotus or a 1967 Corvaire, a dead battery isn’t going to get you anywhere. It’s likely you’re familiar with that soulless “click-click-click” sound that comes from a flat power source.
Flat batteries happen all the time, and we’re here to assist. We’ll come to your location, check your battery, and if it’s flat, we’ll jumpstart it with our high-powered equipment. We’ll also inspect your alternator and starter motor to make sure they’re functioning correctly.
What Are The Signs Of A Dead Battery?
There are a few tell-tale signs that indicate your battery may be flat, and these include:
- Your car won’t start (click-click-click)
- The headlights are dim or going dim
- The engine is slow to turn over
- Your battery light comes on
- Your ABS light comes on (anti-lock braking system)
This happened at least once a year; the headlights would fade to orange, go black, and the engine would cut off when my Dodge Dart’s battery went dead. I had to coast her to the side of the road after that. This was in Ohio. Oakland Park Towing Company can assist you down here in Florida.
How Can I Prevent My Battery From Dying?
The best way to keep your battery from dying prematurely is to have it serviced regularly by a qualified mechanic. They will be able to clean and tighten the connections, and test the battery to ensure it’s in good condition. You can also help prolong its life by avoiding leaving lights on overnight, or using high-powered electrical accessories when the engine is off. If you live in an area with cold winters, it’s a good idea to invest in a battery blanket or charger.

What Causes A Dead Battery?
While there are various reasons a battery may die, the most typical cause is age. All batteries have an expiration date, and as they get closer to that point, their performance will slowly decline.
Another common reason for batteries dying prematurely is leaving lights on overnight or frequently using high-voltage electronics like heaters or stereos. If you live in cooler climates, frigid temperatures can also shorten your battery’s lifespan.
What Is Your Jumpstart Process?
At Oakland Park Towing Company, we have a simple and straightforward jumpstart process. We’ll come to your location and test your battery. If it’s found to be flat, we’ll hook it up to a strong power source so that the battery can “vampire” some juice giving your car a spark. Then we’ll run a test on your charging system just in case that’s the issue. If everything seems to be in working order, then maybe it’s time for you get a new battery.
