The simple fact is that 70% of car batteries fail within 4 years. They just need to be replaced when they are no longer able to hold a full charge. Batteries are a big ticket item for most San Diego and it’s tempting to put off buying a new one as long as possible. But a battery that cannot hold a full charge requires the alternator to work extra hard, causing it to wear out prematurely. - See more at: Tip Source: http://stuartterry.autotipsblog.com/2015/12/16/automotive-tips-from-stuart-terry-auto-repair-battery-testing#sthash.NPyvRfOB.dpuf One thing all San Diego can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Stuart Terry Auto Repair can help maintain your battery. Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined. Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life.
