Police said they believe John Harry Shannon of Ridgeway, South Carolina, had been at Lake Ridge Nursery’s annual “Pumpkin Patch” when he tried to cross the busy roadway at 7 p.m. He was walking outside the intersection and its designated crosswalk when he was hit by a 2002 Mazda Protégé traveling east just past Springwoods about 7 p.m., said Prince William police Sgt. Jonathan Perok.
The preliminary crash investigation says an 18-wheeler was traveling in the eastbound outside lane of I-20 when a 2002 Mazda Protege entered the outside lane from the shoulder, just in front of the semi truck.
The video above shows you how to replace the battery in your 2002 Mazda Protege5. We recommend changing the battery in Mazdas every 4 years. Although some batteries last much longer, most batteries begin breaking down chemically after four years, so you could experience dimmer headlights and other negative effects before you have a dead battery in your Protege5 that you need to replace.
Replacing the battery in your Protege5 involves removing the terminals. When you reconnect the terminals, your radio presets are likely to be cleared out. In some Protege5s, you may need to re-enter a security code to get your radio to work again. Check for this code in your owners manual - it will usually be either a sticker or small card in the booklet. If you can't find it, call Mazda and they will give you the code for free. In many Mazdas, the transmission "learns" how you drive over time and makes adjustments, so you may experience altered driving dynamics as your car re-learns your driving style after changing the battery.
