Tips for Maintaining the Car Battery

2023-01-04 00:00:00

Until your vehicle starts, your battery is providing the car’s entire electrical current. This includes the current to the ignition and fuel systems, which are responsible for creating the combustion necessary for your engine to function. If the battery is in poor condition, then the vehicle cannot start.

In fact, the battery does not require us to maintain as often as the engine. As long as we pay a little attention to the car, we can increase its service life. Therefore, we have to pay more attention to the battery status of the vehicle to avoid unnecessary trouble. In this article, we will give you some tips to maintain the car battery, so you won’t be left stranded with a non-starting vehicle.

● Turn off the electrical equipment of the vehicle before you stall the engine, such as the lights inside and outside the vehicle, the air conditioner, etc. After the vehicle is turned off, some electrical equipment will still keep running. These electrical equipment will consume the power of the battery. Over time, it will affect the service life of the battery.

● When the vehicle is stationary, the battery will maintain a slow discharge state, so the vehicle should be started occasionally to charge the battery (maintain idling for about 20 minutes each time).

● If the battery is in a low-charge state for a long time, its service life will also be shortened. Someone may remove the wires at both ends of the battery (just remove the negative electrode). However, the battery power failure will affect the electronic equipment, so use this method with caution.  


A weak or dead battery can wreak havoc on other electrical system parts, so it’s crucial for you to check the status of the battery regularly and make sure the voltage is correct and prevent further potential damage. Besides, it's also vital to purchase high-quality lead acid car battery from a reliable car battery supplier.
