On November 6 at 2 AM, clocks will be turned back an hour as we reach the end of Daylight Savings Time. Fire departments across the country typically take this event to remind people to check their smoke alarm batteries. Now, mechanics are also taking this opportunity to remind people of critical maintenance needed on vehicles: changing their blinker fluid.
Across the country, many people no longer use turn signals while changing lanes or turning. This unfortunately is not because they’re bad drivers, but because they have never learned how to change their blinker fluid.
Blinker fluid should typically be changed once a year, or more, depending on how often you use your turn signals. It’s important to completely drain the blinker fluid and fill with fresh, or blinker light lifespan will be shortened.
