Every vehicle needs a healthy battery to start its engine. The battery is a bit like the heart of your engine. If it works properly, so does your engine. And you enjoy safe and pleasant driving. The battery also assists powering the engine and provides a charge for the vehicle electronics and electrical accessories. The battery provides the power when the charging system cannot take the excessive loads. The charging system includes the alternator which charges the battery whilst the engine is running.
To avoid the inconvenience of your vehicle not starting, regular charging system and battery health checks are necessary. The battery loses performance over time. Its lifetime depends on a number of factors and can be reduced by, for example, a lot of short trips. On average, the battery’s lifetime is about four-six years.
