What Is a Car Battery?
A car battery is a crucial component of your vehicle. It is the source of electricity to power all electrical parts in your car, including your starter. The battery converts chemical into electrical energy. It delivers adequate voltage so your car will start.
Once your car is running, your battery continues working by stabilizing the voltage from your engine. If your battery is dead, you must rely on another vehicle’s functioning battery to start your vehicle with a pair of jumper cables. Avoid the hassle and replace your battery before it leaves you stranded.
How Long Does a Car Battery Last?
A car battery can be recharged. Once it no longer retains a charge, it’s dead. Like most car parts, how long a battery lasts largely depends on your driving patterns, environment, and particular model. Under ideal conditions, such as a moderate temperature and normal humidity levels, you can expect your battery to last you six years or around 50,000 miles.
What Are the Signs My Battery Is Dying?
With all car parts, it’s better to replace failing equipment sooner rather than later. There are a number of clear signs that your battery may be on it’s last run. A slow engine crank when you attempt to start the vehicle may indicate your battery is dying. Check for any check engine lights, including your coolant light. You can also look at your battery fluid levels. If your fluids are below the lead plates, you will either need a new battery or a recharge.
A bloated battery case from excessive heat will also decrease your battery life. Finally, you may start to notice a distinct rotten egg smell permeating from under the hood. This sulfur odor may indicate your battery is leaking which can affect other parts in your vehicle. Always replace your battery as soon as you notice any of these signs.
