Why the Battery Wears & How to Improve Longevity

There are a variety of reasons your car’s battery will wear out. From driving habits and how often you use your vehicle, to lifestyle demands and climate conditions, there are a multitude of factors that can affect the longevity of your vehicle’s battery. Extreme summer heat and frigid winter weather can cause a battery to wear down faster.

Factors such as leaving your headlights on, neglecting to turn off interior lights, and frequent short drives can lead to faster wear on your battery. To avoid an unexpected dead battery, we suggest testing your battery’s charge twice a year. While you’re completing bi-annual battery tests, you should also check for corrosion, and ensure the connections are clean. If you are hesitant to check the battery yourself, Groove Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram offers battery inspections.

Why Do Batteries Deteriorate

Why Do Batteries Deteriorate

There is a multitude of reasons that batteries deteriorate, but the most common include:

  • Time: As your battery ages, the charge and performance will begin to deteriorate.
  • Weather: Extreme temperatures, both cold, and heat strain your battery. Cold weather causes batteries to lose their charge, while hot weather causes the evaporation of liquids in the battery.
  • Road Conditions: Potholes, off-roading, and other road conditions will loosen your battery’s hold-down clamps, therefore causing the internal battery parts to break down faster.
  • Jump Starting: Having to jump-start your vehicle will decrease your battery’s lifespan.

  • Start the engine, keep your vehicle in park, and turn on the headlights.
  • Put your foot on the accelerator, and the headlights to examine any change in brightness.
