Expert Tips From Our Automotive Technicians

Understanding Your Car Battery

Do you have questions about the battery in your car? Read on for some expert information from the automotive professionals at Rad Air of Wickliffe.

The amount of charge you have available is related to your driving habits. The battery recharges itself from the power generated when you drive your car. Unlike common household batteries that completely drain after a period of time, car batteries are rechargeable. If you haven’t driven your car in a while due to a vacation or illness, your car may have trouble starting.

Harsh weather is hard on batteries. As you may know, any type of extreme heat or cold can cause issues with batteries. If you spend a lot of time driving in very cold weather and store your vehicle outside, then you may need to take certain precautions, like installing a heavy-duty battery. This type of battery will provide longer, more stable power during the winter.

Batteries have a long-term shelf life. Batteries generally last from three to five years. When a battery needs to be replaced, our process is straightforward and thorough. First, we install a memory saver to retain radio station settings, PCM data, and clock settings. We clean the terminal ends, clean out the battery tray, and prepare the area for the new battery. The battery cables are detached, the old unit is removed, and the new battery is put in your car. After installation, we check the alternator output and the battery charging rate to confirm that the system is working properly.
