Did you know that one of the top calls for roadside assistance is because of a dead car battery? One of the most important parts of your vehicle, the battery has to be strong enough not only to start your car but to power the on-board computers and all the accessories that are an integral part of today’s modern vehicles. Servicing your car battery is not only one of the easiest forms of maintenance to keep your car running smoothly, but it is one of the most important.

Without any thought, many of us just jump into our cars and expect them to start. However, the old adage “out of sight, out of mind,” is often true for the car battery. Because it resides under the hood and there is no standard mileage interval for a car battery replacement, it is easy to forget about taking care of this crucial component that makes your car run!

But you may be wondering just when your car battery should be replaced? Just like a smartphone battery, every time you charge it, it gradually loses a bit of its effectiveness. A car battery can take anywhere from three to five years of normal use for it to become worn down and inefficient. It can then become totally unreliable, which then causes safety and reliability issues.

A weak battery can affect your vehicle in several ways, including:

  • Auto electrical system – Even though your car may still start with a bad battery, it can be affecting other features (such as headlights, a navigation system, power windows, and door locks) that require significant power demands.
  • Constant battery drain – Newer vehicles have powerful computers that are operating all the time, constantly drawing energy from the battery even when the vehicle is turned off.
  • Stop-start technology – This technology places a greater strain on the battery because the car is constantly stopping and starting again.

With freezing temperatures here for a while, it would be smart to have your car battery inspected at every oil change. A battery can be at 90% performance one day, and go down to 20% a short time later. By keeping track of the health of your battery and knowing when it's time for a car battery replacement, you can avoid being stranded out in the cold.
