When you buy a new car, you expect it to have a good battery. And it does. A used car bought from a reputable dealer is also going to have a good battery. A great car worth driving is also worth the maintenance it takes to maintain its value, and one maintenance procedure to accomplish such a goal is to replace a battery when it begins to fail. When problems arise in the electric system, the first thing a technician will do is perform a battery and alternator check to diagnose the problem, which is nearly always going to require a new battery.
Leaving the lights on is the most common issue to instigate such a problem, but there are other ways for such a problem to occur. An alarm that isn’t turned off places a hard drain on the battery, as does playing the radio when the engine isn’t running the alternator. Ultimately, the battery is intended to turn the starter motor to crank the engine, then the alternator provides the electricity for the vehicle systems to run properly. Although the battery is designed to handle more than that first task, anything else puts a strain on it and can potentially wear it down prematurely.
When a battery first begins to go bad, it can cause all sorts of unexpected problems. Door locks and power windows are common culprits for not working. Fuses can blow as the balance of amps and watts change, heating and air conditioning may begin to act sporadically. The car will first have a hard time trying to start, which will lead to further battery wear, then the car eventually won’t start without a jump of supplemental power. When the battery is dead, and the car won’t start, the driver will wish they didn’t have to require external help or a tow to get the part replaced.
