Batteries

All drivers will eventually experience the dreaded dead battery. It’s a fact of life for anyone who owns a vehicle because batteries typically last 3 to 5 years.

There are several reasons why your car battery eventually dies. One is that you accidentally left a light on overnight. This problem will most likely only need a jump start. It’s frustrating, but not usually time for a new battery or a trip to New Bedford Auto Repair.

Another cause of a dead battery is old age. After a while, your battery won’t start because the wear and tear of age finally caught up to it. The battery will need to be replaced if this is the case. Ensure to use a trusted technician to replace a battery. By simply installing it backwards, the entire vehicle’s computer system can be damaged and result in thousands of dollars in repairs.

An additional reason for a dead battery is the charging system isn’t working properly. Another possible cause is a defective alternator diode, which can cause the circuit to charge when the engine is shut off.

While it’s not always obvious that your battery is on its way out, there are a few signs that indicate it may be time to replace the battery. They are a slow engine crank, and exposure to extreme cold and lack of use can cause your battery casing to swell. When checking the battery fluid, look at the translucent part of the casing. If the fluid level is below the lead plates, it’s time to have a technician inspect your car.

If the battery tests fine, the issue could be with your starter or alternator. Call New Bedford Auto Repair for an appointment, so that we can find the problem as soon as possible and get your car on its way.
