A dead battery. There is nothing more frustrating if you are trying to get to work than not being able to start your car.
If you have ever put your key in your car’s ignition and nothing happens, then you know how it feels. The role of the battery is to supply power to get the engine to start. Having a good quality battery will give you confidence that your car will start whether in hot or cold temperatures, getting you where you want to go. The experts at Fairlawn’s Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers can help you get the right battery for your car. Here are some things to know:
• Vacation or illness can stall you. When your car isn’t driven because you are out of town or are recovering from an illness, your car’s battery won’t charge. A jump start may be necessary due to a low battery charge. To avoid this problem, drive your car. When you drive your car, the engine actually recharges the battery for you. Still stalled? Have your car towed to the automotive repair technicians at the Fairlawn Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers for help.
• Heat or cold can drain batteries. The swings in temperature from winter to summer can cause issues with your battery. If you drive all year long and store your car outdoors, then have your battery checked to make sure it will start. You may also want to consider a heavy duty battery that can provide longer, more stable starting power over the long term.
• Determine your charge level. Concerned about your battery not being charged? You don’t have to worry. Just bring your car into our Fairlawn Rad Air Complete Car Care and Tire Centers and our automotive team will quickly measure your charge. You’ll know in moments if you need a new battery or can drive safely.
• Batteries have great longevity. If you consider how many times you drive your car, you’ll be grateful when you think about the fact that it can last from three to five years. If you hit that mark and haven’t changed your battery, it may be time.
