Car repairs and replacement parts can be expensive, you can keep costs down by ensuring you maintain your car with regular servicing and general maintenance.
Here are Chris’ tips on how to prolong the life of your battery.
1. Drive your car regularly
Leaving your car parked up for periods of time can affect the battery’s charge, make sure you drive it at least every other day.
2. Have your car serviced regularly
Poor engine condition can overload the battery and reduce its lifespan, ensure you get your car serviced regularly so that your engine can be checked over.
3. Check the battery charging rate
Have the charging system voltage checked at every service. Both undercharging and overcharging will reduce the battery life.
4. Avoid draining the battery
Avoid using electronic accessories when the engine is switched off, this will drain the battery.
