Your car battery is a crucial component of your vehicle, and it is important to take steps to keep it in good working condition. Here are some things you can do to lengthen the life of your car battery:
Keep your battery clean: Dirt and corrosion can build up on the battery terminals over time, which can impede the flow of electricity. To prevent this, clean the terminals with a wire brush and battery cleaner or use a battery terminal protection spray which we offer at an affordable price.
Drive your car regularly: If you leave your car parked for long periods of time, the battery can gradually lose its charge. To prevent this, try to drive your car as often as possible if not daily as Missouri’s weather is consistently changing.
Turn off all electrical components when you park: Leaving your headlights, radio, or other electrical components on when you park can drain your battery. Be sure to turn off all electrical components before leaving your car.
Keep your battery secure: Vibrations and jolts can damage your battery over time, so make sure it is securely fastened in place by the battery hold down. This is something we ensure as well when installing the battery for you.
By following these tips, you can help ensure that your car battery lasts as long as possible, which can save you money and prevent breakdowns in the future.
