Four Steps To Perform Battery Maintenance

  • Inspection

A visual inspection could help you avoid mishaps down the road since a failing battery could produce signs that you can see. For example, a battery that leaks acid will have green or purple residue on its terminals. Other things to look out for include damage to the external cover or burnt marks around the battery terminals.

  • Maintain Proper Charge Levels

A battery could go bad if left without charge for a long time, so avoid parking your vehicle without starting it. A good way to keep your battery charged is by taking it for a 20-30 minute drive weekly.

  • Monitor The Battery Temperature

If you are experiencing any electrical issues, check on the battery and its temperature. A hot battery could signify internal shorting, and avoid mounting a battery close to heat sources.

  • Keep The Battery Clean & Secure

The best way to ensure your battery functions well is by keeping it clean and securing it properly within the battery holder. Don't attempt to use a different size battery than recommended as that can cause issues, and always clean the battery terminals.


Why is battery maintenance important?
