Car batteries are fundamental parts of both the charging and starting systems. Within the starting system, the role of the battery is to send a current of electricity to the starter so that the vehicle is able to start and run. In addition, the battery is responsible for supplying electricity to other electrical components, such as the radio and the internal and external lights when the demand exceeds the supply of the alternator or when the vehicle is off. Most vehicles use one battery, but vehicles with diesel engines, electric vehicles, or vehicles that run a 24-volt system may require two or more batteries to power their engines and electric systems. Currently, the SLI battery is a popular type of battery used in many vehicles. The letters, which stand for starting, lighting, and ignition, indicate the battery’s major functions. Overall, an automotive battery is an essential component in vehicles. Without a working battery, an engine will not start. As such, it is important for a driver to keep watch over battery life.
If you are having trouble starting your engine, visit us for a battery replacement service. We will determine if the battery is the cause of the problem and in need of replacement. In addition, our replacement service may be advisable even if your battery is currently working properly. Although new batteries generally perform well for the first three to five years before they are likely to malfunction, battery life can be shortened from extreme weather conditions or improper maintenance. Unless you have access to the right testing tools, there may be little warning that your battery needs to be replaced. Our staff has the necessary tools to review your battery’s performance. If our results indicate you need a replacement battery, we will help you through the replacement process. If you have questions or concerns about your battery, simply give us a call or contact us online.
