Battery TipsSandgateAutoElectrics Web Team
The battery is a key component of your car’s electrical system and the most common cause of vehicle breakdowns. A number of simple steps can be taken to ensure your battery is kept in optimum condition all year round.
- Check your battery terminals regularly to make sure that they are clean and tight.
- Most newer batteries are maintenance free and won’t require topping up but if yours does ensure that the electrolyte level is correct. If topping up only use distilled water.
- Make sure the battery is secure. This can often be a problem as brackets can shake loose especially in off-road vehicles.
- If your battery has not been replaced in 3 – 4 years consider a replacement as battery failures often occur with no warning.
