Why do car batteries fail?

Your car battery is the source of power that starts your car and keeps it running, so it is unsurprising that a large percentage of roadside breakdowns are caused by car battery failure. Some of the reasons why car batteries fail can include:

  • Extremes in temperature
  • Infrequent use of your vehicle
  • Leaving on lights or the radio
  • A car battery fault

When does my battery need to be replaced?

Car batteries have an average lifespan of 3 to 4 years, so if your battery is approaching this age or you notice any of the following symptoms, it is time to have your battery checked:

  • Rapid clicking noise when you turn the ignition key
  • The engine is slow to turn over after ignition
  • Headlights appear dimmer

PTA Garage Services offer a free car battery heath check simply contact your local branch to book.
