Car Care for the Clueless – No “SIR” you need protection

ASE-certified tech and radio host Pam Oakes goes over the pros and cons of supplemental air restraints (SIR) or air bags in vehicles. Joining her this week on Car Care for the Clueless is ASE-Master L1 tech Pablo Sarmiento. Learn about the how and why these safety features are in your car or truck – and what you need to do to protect yourself. And don’t miss out on our own gadget guru, Peter Sudak. He’s back with us this week talking about battery savers, belts and magic erasers. It’s all about your vehicle and keeping money in your wallet.
Regarding our featured service bulletins: Contact your local cell phone provider to get the proper car charger or call your local Kia dealer or ASE Blue Seal shop if you have to get the aftermarket charger parts removed from the socket. Toyota seat “squeaks” can be addressed at your local dealership (under the 3 year/36,000 mile warranty). If you are past your warranty, you have the option of your favorite ASE Blue Seal shop or dealership for repairs.
