With winter fast approaching, AAA East Central is offering free battery and electrical system checks for Pittsburgh-area residents.  At the Battery Wellness Clinics, technicians will determine if attendees’ batteries are strong enough to endure the cold winter months.  If needed, attendees can purchase batteries on-the-spot. 

Summer heat breaks down the components inside a battery, making them susceptible to failure in cold weather.  AAA’s number one service call during the winter is for dead batteries.  To celebrate Car Care Month, AAA East Central is offering this free service to help members and the public avoid being stranded with a dead battery in the dead of winter.
