Knowledge is power when it comes to your vehicle's battery and electrical system. In fact, your car's battery powers every component of your vehicle, and if it isn't cared for, your car could easily break down anywhere, at any time. At A.M. Maus and Son, we understand how critical it is to care for car batteries, which is why we offer routine service and maintenance from our Kimball, MN service center whenever you need it. 


Common Causes of Battery Wear  


The battery of your car gives it the necessary jolt of electricity it needs to power all every single part under the hood. Have you ever been unable to start your car? Odds are, your battery wasn't charged enough. The average lifespan of a car battery is about six years, but a variety of factors, including human error, parasitic drains, faulty charging, and a defective alternator can affect the lifespan of your car's battery.  


·       Human Error - If you accidentally leave your interior light or headlights on after you've parked your car for the night, you run the risk of significantly draining your battery. 

·       Parasitic Drain - Parts of your vehicle can sometimes keep running even after you turn the key off, leading to a parasitic drain of your car's battery. 

·       Faulty Charging - If your car's charging system isn't working properly, your battery can't be sufficiently charged.  

·       Defective Alternator - The alternator automatically recharges your battery. If your alternator isn't working properly, your battery can't be recharged.
