Did you know that the battery is one of the most important parts of a vehicle? It manages a variety of tasks and devices, from starting the engine to powering in-car computers. Did you know that flat or damaged batteries are one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls? The batteries are simply too old for the job they’re performing.

After four or five years, most car batteries will be almost completely unreliable. Even with proper maintenance, many car batteries will become inefficient within three years of everyday use in normal conditions. Cold weather puts a two-fold strain on the battery by reducing its power output (up to 50% at 20 degrees F) and increasing the amps needed to crank a cold engine (up to double the amps at 20 degrees F).

Starting problems may be due to low battery voltage. Other battery components that should always be inspected and may need to be replaced include the cables, anti-corrosion washers for the battery terminals, battery tray and the hold-down hardware and clamps.

The alternator should also be checked to make sure it is operating correctly and is capable of keeping the battery at full charge. If it is overloaded, it may overheat and fail, causing the battery to run down and go dead. Symptoms of a charging problem include a low battery, dim headlights, hard starting or a charging system warning light.

Tip to Remember: The relatively small price of a car battery replacement is worth the cost to avoid the stress and hazards of a roadside breakdown.
