Maintenance of Batteries
- Remove the clamps and clean away grease, dirt and any oxidation. Battery connections that are dirty or oxidised will weaken the charge.
- If you’re stretching the life of a battery, you may have to add some distilled water to it but it is best to replace it.
- If your battery is jiggling around, it could tip over. A loose battery bashing against other parts of your engine is not a good thing and you could end up with battery acid spilling and corroding another part of your car.
- Keep the battery tray clean. Make sure the battery sits in place securely and firmly.
If you don’t use your car for a long time, it will, without doubt affect it’s charge. To maintain batteries to their required level of charge, make sure you regularly drive your vehicle as the alternator charges your battery as you drive.
Avoid leaving things like sat navs’ phone chargers, TV’s etc on if not needed as this will end up with the battery requiring a recharge. If you are constantly recharging your battery it will shorten its life.
