It may not seem like it, but the battery is actually one of the most important systems in any vehicle. Before the car battery existed, people had to manually wind up a crank to get their cars to start. Nowadays, car batteries deliver the voltage needed to start our engines. They also provide a steady flow of current that powers your vehicle’s electrical systems. When your battery fails, your car won’t start. If you don’t want to get stranded on the side of the road, it is important that you maintain your car or truck’s battery. If your car takes longer than usual to start, if you smell rotten eggs when you inspect your battery, or if you have had the same battery for more than four years, it probably means that it’s time to have it replaced. Corrosion can also be a problem with car batteries, so it is wise to inspect your battery on occasion to look for white, crusty buildup on the terminals. This corrosion can interfere with your battery’s ability to function. Here at K&M Auto, we see dead or dysfunctional batteries all the time. We can test your battery to see if it holds a charge, clean it if there is corrosion, and replace it if your old battery is over the hill. Taking care of your car battery doesn’t take much effort, and it could save you a lot of inconvenience and trouble in the future.
