A car's battery is one of its most important parts, providing power to the ever more complex circuitry found in modern vehicles. Unfortunately, it is often overlooked in favour of more obvious components like the brakes, with the ultimate result that it can wear out and cause problems for the owner. Properly cared for, however, a good battery can last for more than five years.
More than almost any other cause, a flat battery is one of the main reasons for road-side assistance calls. Whether it's due to over or under-charging, seasonal factors or a defective charging system, if a battery consistently fails it is likely that a replacement is required. As long as you pay attention to proper safety procedures and environmental responsibilities, it's perfectly possible to do this yourself.
Although, the most obvious way to tell when your battery needs replacing is when it starts to fail regularly, this of course is not the most ideal way of finding out. Thankfully there are other signs too. Corrosion or stains are easily visible and may be indicative of problems, while the smell of sulphur is another tell-tale sign.
There's no substitute for professional battery care so if you need an assistance or help, feel free to call or visit the Aftersales team at Beadles Group to book your battery service today.
