As a car owner, you rely on your vehicle to get you where you need to go. But have you ever stopped to think about the importance of your car battery? Without a properly functioning battery, your car won’t start and you’ll be left stranded. That’s why it’s crucial to regularly test your car battery and replace it when necessary.
There are several reasons why car batteries fail. One of the most common is simply age. Over time, the chemicals inside the battery break down and lose their ability to hold a charge. Extreme temperatures can also cause damage to your battery, as can leaving your lights or other electronics on for an extended period of time.
Another common cause of battery failure is corrosion. Corrosion can build up on the terminals of your battery over time, preventing it from making a proper connection with your car’s electrical system.
The best way to prevent getting stranded due to a dead battery is by regularly testing it. At NAPA AutoCare Centers of New Mexico, we recommend having your battery tested at least once a year, especially if it’s more than three years old.
During a battery test, our technicians will use specialized equipment to measure the voltage and overall health of your battery. If we find that your battery is weak or failing, we’ll recommend replacing it before it leaves you stranded.
