Battery Maintenance Tips

Batteries don’t last forever, but some good practices and simple maintenance can go a long way towards maximizing the lifespan and making sure that a dying battery doesn’t sneak up on you. These include the following:

  • Check for corrosion on or around the battery terminals, this is a sign of a weakening battery. It may need to be replaced soon, but removing the corrosion can help keep the problem from getting worse.
  • Check for loose clamps or cables. Poor connections make the battery work harder, and an overworked battery won’t last as long.
  • Turn off electrical accessories when not using them. This is true while driving the car, but it’s especially important when the engine is switched off.
  • Make a note of the date code on your battery. This is usually found on the side of the housing. There will be a number and a letter, with the number representing the year, 18 meaning 2018, for example. The letter is the month, A being January, B is February, etc. This will help you to form a general idea of how much life is left on your battery.
  • Be aware that extremes of heat or cold will shorten your battery life. Parking in areas with more stable temperatures will help some, but in general just be aware that you will have to replace your battery sooner in these climates.
