All About Car Batteries

First, it's important to understand how a car battery operates. Basically, the battery is the heart of the vehicle, constantly pumping a stream of life into it. Without a heart, you don't have life. Similarly, without a battery, the car won't have life.

A battery has two main functions. First, it will start the car by delivering voltage to the starter. This is done by converting chemical energy into electrical energy. The second function of the battery is to keep the vehicle moving by providing enough energy to keep the car running throughout your commute.

The battery is closely tied to the car's starting and charging systems. Therefore, it's essential that it's working properly. If not, it will need to be replaced.

Signs of a Failing Battery

It's highly recommended to have the battery looked at before it completely dies. So, how do you know when it's failing? Several signs to look for include:

  • Slow engine crank: If it takes longer than normal to start the engine, the battery could be dying.
  • Leaking battery: A leaking battery causes corrosion around the posts, where the + and - cable connections are located. If the gunk doesn't get removed, the car might not be able to start.
  • Swelling or bloating battery case: This usually occurs in excessive heat. When the case swells, it decreases the battery life.
  • Old age: A car battery usually lasts about four years. If you're not sure how old it is, you should be able to find the manufacture date on the battery case.
  • Check engine light: The appearance of this light can mean one of several things. It could mean a weakening battery. It could also mean there's something wrong with the alternator or some other part of the electrical system. Either way, you'll need to get the car looked at by a professional as soon as possible.
