Troubleshooting Vehicles During the Rainy Season

Troubleshooting Vehicles During the Rainy Season

Currently, several regions in Indonesia have entered the rainy season. This means, you as a car owner must spend extra time doing car maintenance. 

Because the rain that keeps flushing the car can trigger problems such as fungus, rust on the body, not to mention the threat of damage if you have to go through puddles to floods. Here are car problems that often occur during the rainy season and what kind of car maintenance can be done to overcome them?

Fungus On Car Exterior Surface

Rainwater contains acids and dirt which if allowed to dry on the glass surface can leave marks and mold spots. Not only the glass, the car body also has the potential to appear moldy if exposed to rain and not cleaned. 

To prevent this from happening, immediately after the rain should immediately clean and dry the car and park in a place that is not exposed to rain and has good circulation. If your car park is open, you can also use a car cover to prevent the car from getting rained on. But also pay attention to the material used for the car cover, because some materials are not suitable if exposed to water and can fade.

Humid Cabin Ruang

Another problem that often occurs during the rainy season is the condition of the cabin space which is humid, dirty and smelly. This is usually caused by raindrops that enter when riding a car in the rain. 

Drops of water that fall on carpets or car seats that are not leather if not cleaned properly will cause an unpleasant odor. Not to mention the dust and mud that settles on the carpet can also trigger mold and even rust. 

Therefore, it is mandatory for you to immediately clean and dry the carpet that is exposed to wet feet due to rain. Keep all parts of the cabin clean and dry so that driving remains comfortable even when the weather is not friendly. 

Wiper Jam

Your weapon against the pouring rain to maintain a safe visibility while driving is a pair of windshield wiper rubber. But often when it rains too hard and the condition of your wipers from the start is already unhealthy, making it damaged when it is needed. 

To avoid this, check the condition of the wipers and check the elasticity of the rubber and its components before traveling. If the wiper starts to squeak during use and is no longer able to clear the glass, you should replace it with a new one. 

Electrical Problem

Short circuit problems also often occur in cars when entering the rainy season. This is common if the electrical parts are submerged in water, especially if forced to walk through deep puddles. Therefore avoid breaking through puddles whose height is unpredictable. This has the potential to enter puddles of water into the engine which can cause a crash on the spot. 

By doing proper car maintenance, the condition of the car will be maintained even in the rainy season. In addition to car maintenance as above, you can also tune up the engine at an official Suzuki repair shop.
