Why The Battery Wears and How to Increase Longevity

Driving conditions, lifestyle demands, and a variety of other conditions can influence your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram’s battery longevity. How often you use your vehicle and your climate can affect how long a battery will last. Extreme summer temperatures, as well as frigid winters, can cause a battery to wear down quicker. Other factors such as leaving your headlights on, neglecting to turn off interior lights, and frequent short drives can lead to faster wear on your battery, therefore requiring replacement sooner.

Like other components on your vehicle, it is important to have your battery checked periodically. We recommend testing your battery at least twice a year, to avoid an unexpected dead battery. To test your battery at home, you can test the charge, and visually inspect the terminal for corrosion, making sure all of the connections are clean. If you feel uneasy doing routine at-home inspections, our Berlin City Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Service Technicians will gladly perform battery inspections on your vehicle.

Why Do Vehicle Batteries Deteriorate

Why Do Vehicle Batteries Deteriorate?

The reasons for a deteriorating car battery can vary, but the most common reasons include:

  • Time: The simple passing of time can cause wear on your vehicle’s battery.
  • Weather: Extreme temperatures, both cold, and heat strain your battery. Cold weather causes batteries to lose their charge, while hot weather prompts the evaporation of liquids in the battery.
  • Road Conditions: Potholes, off-roading, and other road conditions will loosen your battery’s hold-down clamps, therefore causing the internal battery parts to break down faster.
  • Jump Starting: Having to jump-start your vehicle will also decrease your battery’s lifespan.
Vehicle Battery Testing

How to Test a Vehicle Battery at Home?

Our Berlin City Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Service Technicians will test your battery for you when you bring your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram in for regular maintenance. Schedule an appointment today if you’d like to have your battery tested between regular maintenance. In the meantime, you can test your vehicles batter at home by completing the steps below:

  • Start the engine, keep your vehicle in park, and turn on the headlights.
  • Put your foot on the accelerator, and keep an eye on your headlights to notice if they change in brightness.
  • If your headlights increase brightness when you rev the engine the battery current is not strong enough to support both your idling engine and light levels.
