Car Battery Maintenance

Posted by Motorama in Servicing Tips

Especially during winter, maintenance of your car battery is very important. There are a number of things you can do to prolong your battery's life, saving you time and money, and most importantly reducing the risk of finding yourself stranded with a flat battery.

• Keep battery terminals clean and dry at all times

• Maintain fluid levels but never over-fill your battery

• Distilled water is recommended for topping up your battery

• Never leave your battery standing for long periods without being charged

• Secure your battery as vibrations can damage the battery plates

• Don’t drain your battery by leaving lights or accessories on

• Read your owner's manual before disconnecting your battery to ensure that computer or radio memories are not lost

Car batteries do however have a limited life and on average will last around 3 years. Once a battery beings to fail after 3 years of age, it will rarely respond to re-charging.
