Why is car battery failure so common during Queensland summer?
Our harsh Queensland climate can be unkind to your car’s battery. If you’ve ever looked at the manual of any electronics, you’ll see warnings describing an ideal operating temperature and conditions to ensure that you get the maximum life from your battery.
Now in a car, a much larger machine that creates more than enough of its own heat, the issue becomes obvious – over the lifetime of a car battery it can suffer damage to its internal parts, such as the plates, which can result in car battery cell failure in our climate.
Car battery failure symptoms
There are often symptoms long before your car battery fails. You may notice that your battery doesn’t start your car so easily. Where once you would notice the cranking amps of your battery turn over the engine immediately you turn the key, over time you can feel the start become more laboured.
How to avoid sudden car battery failure
A good maintenance routine is best to avoid sudden car battery failure. Your vehicle benefits from having regular inspections and ensuring that it is good condition.
This is why it is advantageous to you and your car to arrange a free battery checkup periodically – your battery, an integral piece of the workings of your vehicle, is often overlooked.
Your battery may already be suffering due to unavoidable environmental conditions, especially if it’s already starting to deteriorate due to age or other factors, you can be caught in an awkward spot if the issue goes unnoticed for too long.
An auto part like a battery is usually out of sight and unfortunately often out of mind – which is it is great to get expert advice to ensure your car battery remains reliable.
