How Will You Know When to Replace Your Car Battery?

Battery Maintenance Tips 

Fortunately, a car battery replacement doesn’t cost incredibly much. Still, it’s important to maintain your battery so you don’t have to schedule car battery replacement service prematurely. Here are some quick tips to keep your battery in good shape:

  • If you usually only make quick trips around town, try to go for a longer drive occasionally so the battery has a good amount of time to recharge 
  • Ensure the battery hold-down clamps are always tightly fastened 
  • Never use your headlights, interior lights, or interior entertainment features when the engine is off
  • Keep the battery clean of corrosion 
  • When possible, grab a shady parking spot so the battery doesn’t get too hot
  • Check the battery voltage routinely—it should be about 12.7 volts or higher
  • Don’t let your car sit longer than one week without being driven
