Like most batteries, a vehicle battery’s main job is to manage the electricity for the entire vehicle. From keeping things operating while a vehicle is off, to starting the vehicle when you turn the ignition, a vehicle’s battery has an array of uses. The main purpose of a vehicle’s battery, however, is providing starting power for the vehicle. As a vehicle travels down a road, kinetic energy allows the alternator to recharge the battery and provide additional power.
Car batteries are not capable of lasting forever. One day, you may find that your vehicle is having trouble starting and that the lights are either dim or aren’t turning on at all. If you can jump-start your vehicle and it continues to run before you shut off the engine, you can be sure that the battery in your vehicle needs replacement. While you may be able to jump-start your vehicle a few times after the battery has died, you should get a battery replacement as soon as possible.
When you purchase a new battery, you may be offered a three-year warranty on the battery. Most car batteries are expected to last between three to five years, depending on their usage. However, there are instances where a battery may last for less or more time. Weather and driving patterns play a large role in a vehicle battery’s lifespan. Batteries consist of various chemical compounds and materials. As a driver cycles the battery on and off, and electricity continually passes through the battery, the chemicals in the vehicle’s battery break down and cannot perform as well as when the battery was fresh. Additionally, the lead plates that are in the battery begin to break down over time as well.
