GET MOVING WITH A STRONG BATTERY

Your battery powers more than you think. Lights, air conditioning, entertainment systems, on-board computers, power steering­—they all start with a strong battery. Because of this, most batteries are rated to last up to five years. But as time goes on, your automotive electrical system might need help sooner rather than later. Slow starts, dim headlights and sluggish electrical accessories are all signs it’s time for a new battery.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BATTERY

Your owner’s manual has your battery specifications. Simply match the ratings on the battery label:

Group Size: Battery dimensions and placement of terminals.

Cold Cranking Amps (CCA): Ability of the battery to crank the engine at 0 degrees. (Cold temperatures slow electrochemical activity and thicken engine oil.) Make sure your battery meets or exceeds the CCA for your vehicle.

Reserve Capacity (RC): The number of minutes your car will run on battery power alone. If you live in a warmer climate, you might want to give more weight to this rating.

Freshness: Don’t buy a battery older than 6 months.

How Long Does a Car Battery Last?

The average car battery life is 4 years, 3 months. Batteries that have long lifespans are typically well-maintained through regular cleaning and checking to keep the connections tight.

Climate can also impact how long a car battery will last. In the northern states where it is cooler, batteries usually last 5 years. In the hot, humid south or scorching, arid southwest, your battery may only last 2 or 3 years.

What Does the Battery Warning Light Mean?

When the battery warning light illuminates on the dashboard, it means there is a problem with charging the car’s battery. It could be due to a number of reasons, including bad cables or wiring, damaged battery cells or plates, or an issue with the alternator or regulator. Stop into your local Allen Tire Co. and have our team of skilled mechanics use our analyzers and battery testers to evaluate your battery’s condition.
