If it has been several years since you got your battery changed or you’ve begun to notice that not everything is working at its best, it might be time for you to get a car battery replacement.
Car battery replacement is a maintenance operation that should not be overlooked. The battery has a fundamental task: to supply energy to the car’s electrical system (which uses it to start the engine), make the lights work, and many more vital functions.
To avoid damaging it, you must avoid draining it completely (as happens when you forget to turn off the headlights or the interior light etc.).
Car battery not working?
The average life of a car battery ranges from 4 to 6 years.
The battery supplied with your car at the time of purchase is not eternal. They can withstand thousands of continuous charge and discharge cycles but their efficiency begins to decline after a few years, which can cause annoying problems. If your car battery is not working perfectly, we can perform a voltage test to identify any malfunctions, and we’d recommend doing this at least once a year. The length of time a battery lasts is not the same for everyone; a lot depends on the quality of the battery, the use of the car, the frequency of the charging cycles and much more.
How do you know if you need to request a car battery replacement service?
It’s usually easy to understand when you need to replace your car’s battery. The battery must be replaced in the following cases:
- If your car does not start, the problem could be the battery
- When the battery voltage, with the engine off, is lower than 12.4V; you can check this using a tester (voltmeter) by connecting it to the battery poles
- When starting, the voltage is below 11V
- Every 4-5 years, even if it does not present any symptoms, because, over time, the internal elements deteriorate and can suddenly fail
