Here are some steps you can take to help extend the life of your car battery.
You piled the kids in the car recently to take them to the speedway at Rehoboth Beach. The kids were disappointed because your car didn’t start. The battery was dead.
Not only did you have to contend with disappointed children, you also had to buy a new battery. That was especially frustrating because it seems as if you bought a new battery not too long ago. You wonder if your car is somehow eating batteries.
Most batteries last three to five years, according to readersdigest.ca. If you’re replacing them before that time, you may have a problem because many factors can contribute to a shortened battery life. But, take heart, there are steps you can take to help prolong your battery’s life.
Readersdigest.ca lists five pointers:
- Clean the battery terminals.
- Drive regularly and avoid short trips.
- Be mindful of extreme temperatures. “Between long, hot summers and extremely cold winters, nothing takes more of a toll on a car battery than extreme temperatures. Don’t forget to test your battery in every season—not just when it gets cold.”
- Make sure all accessories are off when starting the engine.
- Regularly test your battery.
If you do have trouble with your battery or find you are frequently replacing it, then it’s time to consult a trusted Millsboro auto care pro. You can find a reliable auto care technician at In and Out Tires.
