Caring for Your Car’s Battery

Batteries are at the heart of nearly everything in today’s technological world. From mobile phones to laptops, just about every important tool we use has a battery. Your car is no different. Just imagine you are halfway home from work on a Friday afternoon when suddenly your car’s battery runs flat. Your whole weekend is ruined. But taking proper care of your car’s battery can save you a lot of hassles – as well as a lot of money. Here are some tips to ensuring optimal battery life for your car.

Keep Your Car’s Battery Cool

In just about all parts of South Africa, the temperature in the summer can exceed 30 degrees. It is advisable to keep your car parked in shaded areas as much as possible. Prolonged exposure to extreme heat can eventually cause critical damage to your car’s battery.

Take Your Car for a Long Drive

As with any device that uses a battery, it takes time for your car’s battery to charge. If your car is not used very often, its battery slowly runs down. Short trips to the shops and back do not afford you enough time to properly charge your battery. Try and take a drive that lasts at least 15 minutes, preferably with very few stops and starts.

Clean Your Car’s Battery

Before you do clean your car’s battery, it is important to first disconnect it – starting with the negative terminal. Take a tablespoon of baking soda and mix it in a glass of warm to hot water. Use an old toothbrush to remove any corrosion from the battery. Once you are done, ensure that the battery is fully dry before attempting to reconnect it. Connect the positive terminal first when you reconnect the battery. You can then start your car’s engine to ensure that everything is working perfectly.

Regularly Change Your Battery

To ensure that your car’s battery is always running at the best levels, it is highly recommended that you change your battery every four years or so. As batteries get older, their storage capacity and overall effectiveness tend to diminish.

If you suspect that there might be an underlying issue with your battery, it is best to get it checked by a professional mechanic. At Pace Auto Services, our dedicated team is ready to assist you in ensuring that your car’s battery is always in the best condition so that you can enjoy many happy kilometres in your vehicle.
