Batteries can fail for a number of reasons. If you have a malfunctioning battery, see the Wichita auto care specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.
You were up extra early this morning so you could get some fishing in while the day was still cool. But instead of a peaceful few hours of fishing, you found yourself sitting in your driveway with a car that would not start.
There are few things more frustrating than being ready to go somewhere and not being able to do so because your car won’t start. Many times the problem is your battery. It might simply be dead because it’s old and has reached the end of its natural life. Or, there could be other problems causing your battery to malfunction, according to axleaddict.com.
“Car batteries are probably the most volatile component in the car, and it doesn’t take much for them to go bad. They only have a shelf life of a few years, and they’ll die quicker because of things like disuse, corrosion, and faulty connections,” axleaddict.com says.
Although faulty connections, corrosion and alternator problems are common issues when it comes to a malfunctioning battery, the issue of disuse is more frequent these days because of the pandemic lockdown.
“If the car isn’t being run often, the battery will slowly drain over time and soon won’t have enough juice to send the necessary voltage to the starter,” according to axleaddict.com. “If you’ve let your car sit idle for awhile without using it, usually at least two weeks or more, then your battery might have lost enough power that it can no longer start your engine.”
If you’re not sure whether you need a new battery or if the problem lies elsewhere, you need to talk to a mechanic you can trust, like the Wichita auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
