DRIVERS reveal how to optimize their vehicles on rainy days, including a button you should never press.
On rainy days, motorists have to drive on wet roads with poor visibility and fogged windows, resulting in dangerous driving conditions.
In fact, according to the AAA, one in five auto accidents in the United States occurs in inclement weather or on slippery roads.
A fogged windshield is one of the most common problems drivers face on rainy days.
Due to the temperature change, the inside of the driver’s windshield may fog up quickly, resulting in poor visibility.
The first step motorists should take to quickly clean their windows is to turn on the windscreen demisting feature.
Another step drivers should always take is lowering and raising the driver and passenger windows to provide better visibility and to remove water droplets on the glass.
When driving at night, drivers should always switch on the fog light function to enable drivers to better illuminate the road.
The button that motorists should never press when driving in the rain is the body stabilization system.
According to a YouTube auto influencer, pushing increases the risk of the vehicle buckling and tipping over.
DIY AIR CONDITIONING TRICK
Meanwhile, an auto expert shared how drivers can use a do-it-yourself screwdriver trick to look under the hood to check their air conditioner isn’t cooling.
In the video, Chequanlaosi explains how drivers should open their hoods and check the air conditioning coolant lines.
Next, the auto expert unscrewed a cap from one of the lines and used the screwdriver to press down on the inside until some antifreeze came out of the vehicle.
Another tip Chequanlaosi recommends is to check the AC filter.
If it’s covered in dust, dirt, and grime, you may want to replace it so your air conditioner works better.
