Looking at ground connections and lights post-storage

Ensuring that your car is well looked after while it’s off the road is essential to the preservation of its well-being. This is especially important for vintage and classic models, as they not only possess a great degree of monetary value, but also sentimental worth to their owners. Being keepers of these fine designs ourselves, we know exactly how much they mean to you. As such, our business does everything in its power to make certain that its car storage options are befitting for the task that lies ahead of them.

Your payoff for all the effort and time spent preparing your vehicle for winter storage comes during the spring period. Before you take the car out though, perform a full check to make sure that everything is in good working order. Along the way, you need to be on the lookout for any complications that may have developed over time.

When examining your ground connections, remove and clean them at both the engine and battery. A decent battery and a terrible ground just isn’t going to start up the vehicle. What you must do is wire brush your connections to bare metal and squirt some WD-40 on to safeguard it for a bit. A little dab of copper grease is also a workable option. This will prevent corrosion and assure an appropriate electrical connection for around a year.

With your lights, confirm that your brake, head, running light, and turn signals all function properly. If something fails to work, have a look at the bulbs, ground leads, power feed, and switch. Go through each one separately until you locate the problem and rectify it. Turn signals that can’t flash can be the result of an inadequate flasher, a bulb with an improper wattage, or one that isn’t grounding correctly.
