My car battery exploded

Thursday, September 24, 2015

I was at the groceries store today that my car battery exploded when I had wanted to get home. I was igniting the engine when I heard a boom and everything went out. Nothing worked after that.

I called AAM for help and waited for an hour for the mechanic to come help change the battery.

When I came home, I checked the Internet and learnt that I need to be thankful that it was just a small boom, with no smoke or fire. My car is safe and more importantly I thank God that he kept me safe.

I know now that "free maintenance" batteries aren't really free from maintenance after all. You still need to clean the battery tops, make periodic re-tightening of battery connections, and test to confirm the working condition of the battery.
