Your car battery is at the heart of all your vehicle's electrical systems. It is the only source of power to get your car started so you must check yours regularly. Flat batteries are one of the main reasons for breakdown calls in the UK, especially on cold mornings, and you'll only really know something is wrong when your car doesn't start.
If you are at all concerned about the age or charging capability of your car battery, don't leave it until your car won't start, call into your local TyrePlanet Centre and we will carry out a free and thorough check. Find out more about our free car battery testing service.
Tyre Planet Centre also stocks a range of low price leisure batteries suitable for many applications including camping, boating, caravans, and motorhomes. Order a leisure battery online for collection from your nearest Tyre Planet Centre. (Leisure battery fitting not available)
Make sure your cell voltage is checked when you have your car serviced. A fully charged battery will have a charge of 12.5 to 12.6 volts. When the engine is running this should rise from 13.7 to 14.7 volts.
Inspect your battery every few months to make sure it is clean and secure. An unclean battery connection will weaken the charge, so remove the connectors from the terminal to clear away grease, dirt and dried acid build-up. You could even apply a layer of multi-purpose grease to protect the battery from rust and corrosion.
As temperatures drop more energy is needed to start the engine. To give your battery a helping hand, ensure all accessories are unplugged and switch off anything else that drains its energy. Get into the habit of turning everything off before you leave your car.
Not driving your vehicle enough can lead to battery problems. Batteries will refuse to work when vehicles have been left standing idle. Equally, if your car is only used for short trips, the battery will not have enough time to recharge, which will ultimately leave it flat.
