Our car's battery always seems to die at the most inconvenient time, when you're running late to work or when you come out of the store, and it is pouring rain. But did you know that there are signs your battery gives you before it dies or that it too requires maintenance? Well, the team at CMA Hyundai thought to would put a list together to help you avoid the ever dreaded dead battery and what care you should be performing to get the most out of your battery.
Why good battery maintenance is important
A car that won't stop can put a real damper on your day. Whether you are trying to get home from work after a long day, or finishing up the last leg of a long road trip, relying on your car to get you where you are going is a daily task for many. Batteries can last a long time, but at some point, they will need to be replaced. There are a few signs that your battery may need to be checked out. Signs include a slow starting engine, dim lights and electrical issues, a check engine light on, or, of course, your car not starting at all. When you have any of these signs, its time to get your vehicle in the shop and take care of the issue. Avoid being stranded and feel confident your car will start.
Be sure your battery stays charged
Did you know that short trips don’t allow time for the alternator to recharge your battery fully? Taking too many short trips will create issues with your battery. So if you don’t drive your car very often, it would be an excellent time to buy a portable battery charger. Spending a few dollars now might save you a significant headache in the future.
Stay ahead of a dead battery by regularly testing your battery. Testing your battery regularly allows you to stay in the know and replace your battery before leaving you stranded somewhere. If you are unsure how to test your battery, one of the friendly service technicians at CMA Hyundai would be happy to check it for you, and if it needs replacing, we would be glad to do that as well.
