You get into your car and discover that the engine won't start and that the headlights won't turn on. After you jump start the car, you should find out whether or not you need a new battery or alternator. The battery is what powers every electrical component in a car. At some point, the car battery needs to be replaced, but when? Is there a way to tell that the battery is failing? How long does it last? Most cars have lead-acid batteries that are made of six cells with lead and lead-oxide plates filled with an electrolyte (dilute sulfuric acid). A lead-acid battery loses some of its capacity, mostly due to sulfation. At some point, the capacity will drop so low that the battery won’t be able to start your car. How long can it last? An average car battery lasts from 5 to 7 years. Usually the battery lasts longer if the vehicle is driven daily. If the vehicle is parked for extended periods of time without starting, the battery will need to be replaced sooner. The battery lasts longer when it’s kept fully charged, although overcharging can also damage it. Therefore, problems with your vehicle’s charging system can also cause the battery to fail prematurely. Is there a way to tell that the battery is failing? Not always, but there are some tell-tale signs. When the battery is failing, it loses its capacity, meaning it can hold less charge than when it was new. If your battery has low capacity you may notice that when you are starting the car, the engine turns over slower than before, even if the battery is fully charged. It sounds like the starter motor is “lazy” and not as eager to turn over your engine. You may also notice that the interior lights flicker and go dimmer than usual when you are turning over the engine. Is there a way to test the battery condition? Yes, Car Parts Nigeria can test your battery with a battery tester. You may also get the test printout that indicates the current capacity of your battery and measurements of the starting and charging systems. Usually the test will show if the battery needs to be charged or replaced. If your battery is very old, you might consider having it replaced rather than paying for the test. A battery also needs to be replaced if it is leaking or has a mechanical damage. An old battery could be covered in electrolyte, which is very acidic and can burn your clothes or skin. Does the battery need any maintenance? Most modern batteries are maintenance-free. You can verify this in the owner’s manual for your car.
