A few hints on how most systems work and some easy DIY diagnosis can go a long way to shorten down-time in an often busy travel season.The traditional under the hood location that most automakers use for their batteries brings some pluses and minuses on the charging front. Sure it’s easy to access a battery when it’s not hidden in inner fenders, but during our season of warm content, the temperatures in the average light vehicle engine bay can reach extreme highs, and can cause permanent damage to batteries as little as three or four years old.  So it’s no surprise that drivers are rewarded with the death-knell click-click-click response to their ignition switch when heading out after a hot day for their ride parked outside. Others may experience sudden vehicle power loss and instrument panel icons lighting up while driving making for some white-knuckled maneuvers. If you’re faced with a no-start situation caused by a failed charging system or battery fault, when you try to boost the battery or jump-start it from another vehicle, usually your engine will stall out when the booster cables are disconnected if the alternator’s output isn’t getting into the system.  Fuel injected engines require a constant voltage supply to run pumps, computers, and injectors. Letting the battery recharge with the engine off (either through a boost vehicle or a battery charger) can make the vehicle temporarily mobile but usually not reliable enough to take on the road. This will allow some repositioning in a parking spot for either a tow vehicle’s access or to move it to a nearby secure location. If you’re going to swap out your battery yourself, check your owner’s manual first to see if any precautions are needed to avoid activating a vehicle or audio-system security feature. This may mean a needless trip to your repair shop to get your radio system reset by means of a PIN code. Keeping a booster pack attached to the battery cable ends while changing the battery can avoid this. It can be a little tricky depending on the booster and vehicle cable configurations but nothing that the temporary use of some duct or electrical tape won’t solve by ensuring a continual connection while the swap is underway.

Your Corner Wrench: 5 tips to keep your battery healthyIf a boost gets the vehicle running without booster assistance but still won’t restart on its own, you’re very likely looking at a defunct battery. Those small lithium-ion type battery power packs on the market now can come in handy when trying to boost a dead battery. They’re pocket-sized and light and can pack a major voltage punch without large bulky cables or the risk of creating a spark under the hood. Battery industry leaders Energizer and NOCO brand are two of the more popular makers of these handy units. They range in price from $120-$200 and are available from most auto parts stores. They’re small enough to be safely secured connected to your vehicle’s battery under the hood and in a pinch can get you off a crowded highway providing there are no other charging system problems and the drive is short. If you’re faced with this situation make sure all electrical devices, such as the blower fan, audio, and lights, are either off or reduced to a safe minimum. center_img RELATED Buy It!

(AP) — Angelique Kerber rallied past Madison Keys to win the Family Circle Cup on Sunday, capturing six of the last seven games for a 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 victory.This was Kerber’s fourth WTA title and first since Linz in 2013. The German broke serve five times against an opponent who hadn’t lost serve all week.Kerber fell to the ground and covered her face in celebration when Keys’ final shot sailed long. Kerber had defeated friend, countrywoman and defending champion Andrea Petkovic in the semifinals.Kerber trailed 4-1 in the final set, with the 20-year-old American using a strong serve to build what looked like a solid lead. The German won 12 of the next 16 to tie the match. Keys moved in front once more at 5-4 before Kerber took control for good.Kerber won the next game at love, then rallied from 40-0 down to break serve and pull ahead.

(AP Photo/Mic Smith)Keys, seeded seventh, entered the final on a strong run. She had dominated four opponents in reaching her first clay-court final. But Kerber was just as relentless at keeping the ball in play and counting on Keys’ aggressiveness to lead to mistakes on the slow surface. Keys finished with 57 unforced errors, nearly three times as many as Kerber’s 21.Kerber broke serve three times in a surprisingly quick opening set. Keys found her footing in the second set to tie the match. She moved Kerber from side to side and used her powerhouse forehand to gain control. That continued into the third set and she built a 4-1 lead.Keys consistently hit serves topping 100 mph. Her consistency, though, didn’t match Kerber’s. Keys made only 66 percent of her first serves while Kerber proved steady at 83 percent.It was the second straight knockdown final for Keys and Kerber. Keys outlasted the German in three sets to win her only WTA title, at Eastbourne last June.last_img read more

Craig Breen becomes first ever Republic of Ireland driver to secure works seat in…

first_imgMotorsport Ireland has enthusiastically welcomed the announcement by Citroën Racing that rising Irish star Craig Breen will be one of their drivers when the car manufacturer returns as a works team in the FIA World Rally Championship next season. FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 2016 -WRC Tour de Corse (FRA) – WRC 28/09/2016 to 02/10/2016 – PHOTO : @World It is the first time that an Irish-licenced driver has been signed to a works team in the WRC.center_img Waterford man Breen, who came to prominence this season for the Abu Dhabi Total WRT, and his co-driver Scott Martin have been added to the Citroën team along with French driver Stéphane Lefebvre and his co-driver Gabin Moreau. They join Northern Irish driver Kris Meeke and co-driver Paul Nagle (Kerry), who were confirmed on the team at the end of last year.It means Citroën have two crews considered to be among the most promising young talents in the WRC alongside Dungannon veteran Meeke and Nagle.Alex Sinclair, CEO Motorsport Ireland said: “It is an incredible achievement for any driver to secure a works drive. Craig has come through our youth programmes and fought hard over the years to prove himself as one of the world’s best and this is a just reward for all his effort. With Paul Nagle co-driving for Kris Meeke, the representation of Irish competitors, from both the North and South is phenomenal.”Craig Breen, Citroën Racing works driver, said: “I’m so excited to tell you all that Scott and I will be driving for Citroën Racing in the WRC for the next two years! This is the stuff that dreams are made of, thank you so much to everybody who has made this possible!”He has driven for Citroën in a DS 3 in four WRC rounds this year achieving top 10 finishes in each. The season highlights included claiming a maiden podium with third place in Finland and finishing fifth in Corsica last weekend.Yves Matton, Citroën Racing Team Principal: “We had several scenarios regarding the choice of our crews for the future. Kris Meeke was confirmed at the end of last year and has become the natural leader of the team.“In choosing two young crews to complete the line-up, I don’t think we can be accused of having gone for the easy option. But this original solution is very much aligned with Citroën’s mindset. And having seen them compete this season for the Abu Dhabi Total WRT, we believe in the potential of Craig Breen and Stéphane Lefebvre.They have the natural talent, motivation and work ethic to win rallies. I would also say we are proud to take these young drivers up to the top level of the sport.”The choice is very much in line with Citroën’s long-held policy aimed at identifying and developing talented young rally drivers. In the last 15 years or more, Citroën has identified some of the best in the business: Loeb, Ogier, Sordo, Neuville, Camilli and of course Meeke. Breen and Lefebvre are destined to add their names to this illustrious list!Citroën Racing continues to prepare for its return as a works team in the FIA World Rally Championship. Since April of this year, the Citroën C3 WRC has completed seven development tests, both on gravel and tarmac, and is now very close to the final version.Already involved in the development of the Citroën C3 WRC, Kris Meeke, Craig Breen, Stéphane Lefebvre and Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi will continue to conduct testing until the new car completes homologation. At the same time, they will be competing at this year’s Rally de España (Meeke, Breen, Al-Qassimi) and Wales Rally GB (Meeke, Breen, Lefebvre) in order to acquire experience driving the current cars.At the start of the season the team will enter two Citroën C3 WRCs – one for Meeke and the other for either Breen or Lefebvre. The exact distribution of events to drivers will be announced at a later stage and Citroën will start entering three cars as soon as possible.The FIA’s World Motorsport Council recently decided it would let manufacturers enter three cars, the top two scoring points towards the Manufacturers World Championship.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Volunteers and boats needed for Galway Bay Swim

first_imgI’ve Got Your Back: Debra Coffey, Co. Clare, Norma Carty, Wexford and Claire McLoughlin, Galway pictured at the Frances Thornton Memorial Galway Bay Swim for Cancer Care West.Photo : Murtography Each swimmer needs a boat to follow and track their swim, organisers are again this year asking any boat owner to get in contact with the hope they can volunteer their services on the day. The most suitable boat type is a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat ) fitted with an outboard engine and we are again asking people to help support the swimmers in this year’s swim across the Bay, “explained Ciaran Oliver of Galway Bay Boat Tours.Ciaran went onto say, ‘ideally we are looking for Ribs and small motor boats, but any other suitable pleasure craft between 5 and 8 metres would be considered.  However we are urging people to get in touch and we can then pull together resources from what we have and ensure that this swim is again a safety success.”The swim which is now sold out will see close to 130 swimmers taking part this year it is now one of Ireland’s biggest and longest one day swims. Starting from Auginish in Co. Clare and finishing at Blackrock Diving Tower in Salthill, the swim is a distance of roughly 13 kilometres….if you swim straight.This year there will be 65 solo swimmers and 65 relay swimmers taking part in teams of 2,3 and 4 swimmers. Since the swim began 13 years ago, 569 people have swum the Bay and this year again it will be a mixture of swimmers who have completed the swim every year and complete novices.Last year’s swim raised €108,000 for Cancer Care West and we are hoping to beat that this year. The monies raised will help fund the expansion of our support services for cancer patients including a counselling service for children and a dedicated gym rehabilitation space for cancer patients.The Frances Thornton Memorial Galway Bay Swim will take place on Saturday July 21st. People are invited to go down to Blackrock diving tower, Salthill to welcome the swimmers home from 12 Noon.To volunteer or for more details check out  http://www.galwaybayswim.com/ or on www.facebook.com/galwaybayswim Now in its 13th year, the Frances Thornton Memorial Galway Bay Swim in aid of Cancer Care West returns to the waters of Galway Bay this July. Safety is a priority for the swim, each year the event reaches out to the maritime community in the west to support the swim through boat support. The annual Galway Bay Swim which will take place on Saturday 21st July is looking for volunteers and boats to assist in this year’s race. I’ve Got Your Back: Debra Coffey, Co.
