Have you ever said ‘Good Night ‘ to your car and you were unable to start it the next day? Loss of battery charge can occur for a number of reasons. Many reason could be responsible for the drain you experience in your car battery but the four major causes will be discussed in this article
….AND THESE ARE WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TO AVOID THIS
1.Make sure all of the interior lights are off and that nothing is left on that could drain the battery. You should also never leave the radio on for an extended period of time when you do not have the car running.
2.Keep the battery clean. Use a dry rag to wipe off any dirt or residue near the terminals and connection areas. An unclean battery can sometime be the cause of its drainage.
3.Check to make sure that the cable connections to the battery are tightened and clean. A loose or dirty connection can cause drainage and other problems to the battery.
4.Use a portable car battery charger or volt meter to test and charge the car’s battery if it is below performance level. You can purchase a charger at a local automotive retailer and then use the charger’s jumper cable to test the wattage of the battery.
5.Take your car into an automotive specialist if you continue to have problems with the battery or if you have recurring trouble with the engine turning over. If you replaced the drained battery with a new one yourself then you should make sure you know the cause of the drainage so the problem does not continue.
