You rely on batteries for power. Whether it's using your smartphone or turning on your car, they're what makes using your devices possible. No part lasts forever. That's why Pat Peck Nissan offers battery replacement services to drivers in Gulfport, Pascagoula, and Waveland.
How Often Should I Replace My Battery?
Just like the batteries in your phone and TV remote, it's difficult to predict when your car battery will need to be replaced. In general, it has a lifespan of about three to four years, but a lot depends on usage.
A number factors can drain your battery faster. For example, if you don't drive it very often, that inactivity can hurt its chances of being able to work properly. If you live in an area where it's hot all year, the battery won't last as long as one that's in a colder climate.
The fastest way to drain your battery is to leave the car idling for a while. Doing this often or for an extended period of time usually results in your car needing a jump or a new battery sooner.
While the routine maintenance practice is to replace your battery every three to four years, look out for some signs that your battery is wearing down.
Signs That You Should Replace Your Battery
If you can't remember how long it's been since your last battery replacement, that's ok. Your car gives you some signs that it needs a new one.
The most obvious one is if your car won't start. Leading up to that, if you notice that its taking longer to start, that's an early warning sign that you need a new battery.
Sometimes it not just age or usage. If the battery is damaged it'll need to be replaced. You can usually tell by looking at it if there are any cracks or corrosion around the connectors.
