A vehicle's battery is often neglected for the simple reason that until there is a problem there is no reason to pay attention to it.
Some simple ways to lengthen the life of your battery are:
- Occasionally take a longer drive. Short, stop and go trips don't allow the battery to properly charge.
-Regular battery service- this includes cleaning of battery terminals and checking to make sure the cables are attached properly.
The starting and charging system of your vehicle is made up of several components.
The alternator is closely connected to your battery and creates electricity while the vehicle is driving and charges the battery. These two parts work together to ensure your vehicle always starts and accessories always work when you need them to.
