10 Simple Fall Car Tips to Keep it Running in Top Shape

The fall isn’t as popular as the spring to get your car checked and ready, and that makes some sense. It’s much more exciting to get your car ready for a nice, warm spring and summer than the impending falling leaves and colder weather. That being said, it’s just as important to take a look at your car to make sure that when next spring and summer arrive, it’s as ready as ever.

Here are a few tips that should get you rolling.

Check the brakes and the tires

Colder and wetter weather can make stopping a chore. Make sure your brakes and tires are ready for the colder weather. If you spot anything out of the ordinary, get your car to your favorite mechanic and get that stuff ironed out.

Check the Lights

It gets darker a lot sooner in the fall and winter. While we may not spend a lot of time outside of our cars when the headlights are on, nows the time to do that. Make sure that both lights are operational and with the same level of brightness. Clean dirty headlight covers or replace your lights if needed.

Replace Your Wiper Blades

Have you ever had your wiper blades fail in a snowstorm or in cruddy weather? It’s the worst. Make sure you don’t have that happen by replacing your wiper blades if they are showing any wear. It’s not a bad idea to have an extra pair in your car, either.

Make Sure Your Heater and Defroster Work

Guess what you haven’t used in awhile, the heat in your car! Be sure that you check to make sure that it works after a long winter of using the air conditioning only.

Fluids, Oil, and Battery

Getting into a routine of checking out these items is great not only for fall, but throughout the year as well.

We hope you have a safe fall in the Lehigh Valley! Be sure to call us if you have any locksmith needs.

Replacement Key Fobs in the Lehigh Valley

When key fobs first came out, they were mostly for higher end vehicles. Today, however, nearly every single new automobile comes with a key fob that not only includes a key to your car, but also allows you to lock and unlock it, turn on the alarm, and sometimes other options.

When you lose your key fob, it can be much more of a pain than simply losing a key. Key fobs need to be programmed to your specific car.

Take a look at this recent article.

Better Call Jackson received a call from Claire from the Northwest side of Columbus and she was fuming about the cost of replacing her fob, she felt the dealership was ripping her off to the tune of $425.

Better Call Jackson called several local dealerships and found the cost of replacing the fob from the dealerships can run from $200 to nearly $700, depending on make and model.

In an effort to save money, some consumers are buying replacement fobs for less than $40 over the internet., but it’s still not ready for your car.

“Some places will sell you the fob and not tell you about the programming cost or the diagnostic cost”, said Jeremy Kroy of Buckeye Lock. SOURCE: NBC4
