Good News From a Service Rep
Last Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, we had two feet of snow fall in our area, The truck started acting funny, with the battery light on the dash coming on, and the stereo/CD player acting up. We pulled into the Les Schwab shop in Chehalis, WA, fully expecting to be sold a new battery. After about fifteen minutes, during which time we learned how to put on our chains, the mechanic came out and said we did not need a battery. The battery checked out at almost 100% of the listed specs, and the charging circuit was working at full capacity. He said we probably had not been driving the truck enough to keep it charged up, and this was aggravated by the cold weather. A lot of other places would have sold us a new battery, even if ours was doing well. We will be back.
