Dead Battery

I have a fealing there was a bunch of bum batteries or old batteries installed in the cars. That was the first warranry repair I had and have not hasd an issue since. Get your dealer to replace the battery..

Just do a slow low voltage recharge on the battery and have it checked, should be ok. Mine went dead in my garage before I hooked up the trickle charger.

get the 'battery babbysitter' and attach the pigtails directly to the battery terminals, have them exit on the front 'grill' and your problems are over.

windshield wiper arm

Took off the wipers, wow what a difference. As many have said previously, the outward view is awesome.

I found the perfect solution to cover up the ugly wiper mounts. Ace Hardware sells a black plastic cap 1" id and 1/2" deep. This is a perfect fit and looks like an item that would be a factory issue for anyone wanting to remove the wiper blades. The Ace part number is 56924 and they come 4 to a pack.

Battery Tender.
mine also was dead on the showroom floor when picked it up...they jumped it and the next morning it was dead again. I charged it and have not had a problem since...even after sitting for longer than a week. An alternator will not recharge, only maintain a charge. If charge is low, that is all it will maintain...
