    what to put in my car

    SO i got my liscence about 3 weeks ago. i got a car for Hanukah. It is a 1995 honda accord with 60,000 on it and it is in near perfect condition(one tiny rust spot was repainted by the dealership). So now that it has begun to snow i started thinking about what i need to have in my car. By the way, it has to stay outside overnight.
    Heres my list:
    jumper cables
    a combination ice melter spray with a scraper(so i can leave without spending a lot of time scraping
    something that either prevents my locks from freezing or de-ices the locks
    what else
    (i am very mechanically inclined, you can suggest tools and i will be able to use them)
    hi

    I see a flaw in your plan to put lock de-icing tools inside the car.

    Extra muffler bearings. Mid 90s Accords have a big problem burning them out, and if they die, your muffler will seize up, and you're stranded.

    No, you just run an extension cord out to the car. It warms the battery so you can, you know, start the car in the morning.

    If you're asking, you don't need one.

    Batteries need fluid. That fluid moves less when it's cold. Warm it up, and the fluid moves faster. Therefore, the car starts easier. Rocket science

    And removing the battery is not difficult. Just disconnect and lift it out.

    even if i ran an extension cord, it would be run over at least twice before i left for school, it would be run out the garage, into the snow into my hood, which would probably have to be left open. somedays i have to take my dad to the trains station, so that means leaving at 5:15 am, i don't want to deal with a battery at that time

    No. You don't need one. If you did, you'd know how they work because more than likely a used car would have one. It's one of those things where if you need it, everyone will have it.
