How car battery works?

A car battery is a critical component that provides electrical power to start the engine and power various electrical systems in the vehicle. Car battery provides Initial power to ignition when you turn the key. The battery sends an initial burst of electrical power to the starter motor, which in turn cranks the engine. This process requires a significant amount of electrical energy, and the battery must be in good condition to provide this power. Ones the engine is running, the alternator takes over as the main sours of electrical power. While engine runs, the alternator also recharges the battery.

How do I know when to replace battery?

It's typically recommended to replace a car battery every 3-5 years, depending on usage and various other factors. However, there are several signs that indicate a car battery may need replacement before reaching the 3-5 year mark. These signs include:

1. Diminished cranking power: If you notice that the engine is slow to start or the starter motor seems to struggle, it could be a sign that the battery is losing its cranking power and needs to be replaced.

2. Age of the battery: As mentioned earlier, car batteries generally last 3-5 years. If your battery is reaching this age or older, it's a good idea to have it tested and consider a replacement.

3. Electrical issues: If you experience electrical problems such as flickering lights, power windows operating slowly, or the radio cutting out, it could indicate a failing battery.

4. Visible damage: Check the battery for any visible signs of damage, such as corrosion on the terminals or a swollen or bloated case. These are indicators that the battery is no longer in optimal condition.

5. Check engine light: If the check engine light is illuminated on your dashboard, it can sometimes be an indication of a battery-related issue, and a diagnostic check is recommended.

6. Low electrolyte levels: Some batteries have a visible "eye" that displays the electrolyte level. If the level is low, it may be time for a replacement.

If you notice any of these signs, it's a good idea to have your battery tested by our mobile mechanic to determine if it needs to be replaced. Regular inspection and maintenance of the battery can also help to avoid unexpected issues and ensure reliable performance.
