Why Are Car Batteries Important?
The battery is one of the most important components in your vehicle. If your battery loses its charge and fails to work, the majority of your vehicle’s most important functions may not work, such as starting the engine, radio, power, lights and controls. That’s why it’s important to always keep up on the health of your battery, so you never find yourself stranded with a dead battery. This becomes even more paramount living in cold weather climates like ours, where the cold months seem to stretch on forever, leading to more tenuous battery health and abilities. For all your battery service and maintenance needs, visit West Side Mitsubishi and our expert service technicians will be happy to take care of your needs.
What Is The Lifespan Of A Vehicle Battery?
Depending on the grade, a vehicle battery life cycle lasts between three to five years. You can find out your battery’s manufactured date by looking for the code on the cover of the battery. This is important information to know, so you don’t accidentally drain your battery. Even if you have an old battery, it can still affect your vehicle, as well as your driving habits. For example, if you only take short trips (around 20 minutes) or go long periods without using the battery, it’ll shorten the battery’s lifespan. If you have any questions about battery life, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for more.
How Do You Tell If You Need A New Battery?
- If your engine turns on but doesn’t start or takes longer than normal to start.
- If your vehicle’s lights are dim or not functioning as they should.
- If functions, like temperature, inside your vehicle are not working properly.
- If the battery casing is swollen and looks larger than normal, it may be a sign that the battery life is decreasing.
- If the battery has a rotten smell, it could have a leak and may need to be replaced.
- If your battery is more than three years old, you should think about replacing it.
