Automotive maintenance isn’t as simple as many people think, and there are a lot of mistakes drivers make when it comes to routine vehicle service. This short video shows you some of the pitfalls to avoid when maintaining a vehicle.
One of the most detrimental mistakes a car owner makes is jumpstarting a vehicle in the wrong direction. This means the jumper cables are attached in the opposite way than they should be, causing the charge to flow toward the car’s computer systems instead of the battery. This can cause serious damage to ECUs and other electrically controlled components, resulting in costly repairs.
