Carson Nissan Battery Replacement
Often, it’s tough to tell when it’s time to replace your vehicle’s battery. Each battery has a different lifespan, and every vehicle has different energy needs. However, it’s possible to get your battery checked for efficiency. It’s also possible to replace your battery if it’s showing signs of age. The expert technicians at Carson Nissan have years of experience with battery checkups and replacements. We’re dedicated to our Carson, CA drivers—making sure they’re never left without electric power on their daily commutes.
Why Do Car Batteries Need Replacement?
A car battery’s life generally varies due to three factors: time, vibration and heat. Batteries age over time, so they won’t last forever. Even if they’re used in optimal operating conditions, they’ll deteriorate until they fail to start your vehicle’s engine.
How Time Affects Your Battery
If you drive your car on short trips, its battery might not have enough time to fully recharge. Additionally, batteries in vehicles that remain stationary for long periods of time tend to self-discharge. In both cases, a battery’s lifespan can decrease.
How Vibration Affects Your Battery
Physical wear-and-tear can wear down your battery, too. Day-to-day excursions, harsh weather, and tough driving conditions can do a number on it — resulting in drastically reduced durability as you increase your car’s mileage. To spare your battery from vibration as much as possible, it’s a good idea to make sure it’s fully secured. Ask your Carson Nissan technician team to do a quick checkup, as they can make sure your battery is safe, sound and snug.
How Heat Affects Your Battery
As your vehicle generates heat, and as your battery generates electricity, the battery itself degrades at a higher rate. While cooler weather slows down this process, driving your vehicle for an extended period of time will erode your battery regardless.
Is Your Battery Dying?
Fortunately, the signs of a weakening battery are easy to catch. If your starter motor cranks your engine slowly, or if your vehicle’s battery warning light turns on, it’s a good idea to get it checked. Failing to do so can be hazardous, as your battery might expire when you least expect it.
