Car Battery Replacement And Guide

Car battery is a crucial piece of equipment to start and driving your vehicle. If it fails to provide power, you can be in big trouble. It ruins your plans and makes your journey dreadful especially when you are using automatic cars. Only those will understand, who have gone through such trauma. Timely checking up or inspection of the battery can help in reducing such painful events.

 

What is the function of a car battery?

Automobiles mostly come with rechargeable batteries to give electric current to the car engines and other functional elements of a car. Car battery sends power from the starter motor to the sparks plugs, igniting your car’s fuel, while also giving power to other systems. The components of a car that need power include lights, radio, air conditioning, power steering / electric power steering, fuel pump, AC compressor, electric mirrors, electric parking brake, electric windows, ABS sensors, ABS pump, parking sensors, camshaft sensor, crankshaft sensor, knock sensor, MAF sensor, and more. You may be able to tell when your car battery starts to die if you find it difficult to start, have flickering lights, or a weakening alarm system.

 

Car battery Inspection

When any of the above mentioned happens, do check your battery for;

  • Loose connection due to corrosion, dirt, or scaling.
  • Terminals and cables clean up.
  • Apply anti-corrosive protective coating.
  • Replace damaged cable ends.
  • Tight the connections.
  • Car battery care in winters,

If you really want your battery to survive through winter try to cover your car or park in your car porch/garage. Keep an eye on your battery by making a habit before leaving or make a periodic or scheduled check-up. It is recommended to replace your batteries before the season starts.

 

What are the signs of a dead battery in a car?

It is said that “car battery is either good or its dead”. If your battery is dead following signs and symptoms can be seen;

  • No dome light when opening the door or no door chime with keys inserted.
  • Headlights and radio won't turn on, or headlights are very dim.
  • When you turn the ignition key, nothing happens.
  • Often require a jump.
  • You can hear the starter motor when you turn on the ignition key, but the engine doesn't start.
  • The battery warning light is blinking or stays on.
  • Engine cranks slowly or even stops.
  • Swollen battery case.

Having a fully-functioning car battery is critical for optimal car operation. You can keep moving with a dying car battery but it is not recommended. It becomes difficult with latest editions of cars as they are more demanding for power. The dying car battery cannot just hurt your plans but also have the probability of getting into an accident. If you still have to drive, make sure to travel during day and stay on less trafficked roads.
