Have you ever been stranded because of a dead battery? If so, chances are that it was an inconvenience and perhaps even a costly experience. You should maintain a car battery with the proper voltage to avoid unfortunate experiences such as being late for work, paying towing charges, or missing important appointments. The good news is a weak or discharged battery can easily be prevented.
The first thing that occurs with a battery check is ensuring that the battery cables are securely tightened and removing any built-up acid corrosion. The battery check involves using a standard computerized multimeter to assess the “current state” of the car battery voltage. This assessment is vital to know how the car battery is performing under various loads such as the car lights, wiper blades, or when you’re playing the radio or using other accessories. A fully charged battery should test at 12.6 volts in the parked position and 13.7 to 14.7 volts while the engine is running. Therefore, a battery charge may be necessary.
The primary role of the battery is to start your engine. But a dead battery can affect electrical components such as your navigation system and other computer-based accessories. These accessories may malfunction and need recalibrating to operate effectively. Another important reason is that battery health can deteriorate because of acid corrosion without you even knowing. Once acid corrosion builds up, it can interfere with the battery terminal and cable connections, which gradually leads to a weak battery, and ultimately, being unable to start your engine.
The industry standard for a routine battery check is every 12 months. However, a battery check should also be scheduled if your engine hesitates to start. This could be a sign that the battery is weakening, and it should not be ignored.
Other symptoms that may indicate a car battery check is needed include:
Although you can have a jump-start to get your engine started, a battery with a dead cell is useless and needs to be replaced. A battery charge will not be sufficient.
