The Importance of a Functioning Car Battery

Every car relies on a battery to help run its electrical system. Unfortunately, batteries can die, and they need to get more power to work again. You can do this with a jumpstart. The battery may also have so much wrong with it that it's just lived out its lifespan and needs to be replaced. When this happens, you can trust the experienced team at South Park Tire & Auto Care to remove your dead battery and replace it with one that will provide long-lasting performance.

Signs Your Car Battery Needs Replacing

When you're having battery problems, the most obvious sign of it is that your vehicle just won't start. You might also notice that you open the door to get in, and the light doesn't come on. When this happens, you may need someone to use their own battery to jumpstart yours. This can take a little while and can be frustrating. If the battery simply won't hold the charge, it's time to get a new battery for your car. We can install a new car battery in your car and get it back on the open road.


Just like any other type of battery, car batteries don't last forever.  The general lifetime of a car battery is about three to four years, however, there are some batteries that can last up to six years.

What Factors Impact Battery Life?

When you drive often, you might think that this can run down your battery. However, this is actually good for it. If it sits without being driven or is only driven on very short trips, the battery can drain. It isn't able to get itself charged up, and this can leave it weak or dead. If you have a car that you don't drive very often, drive it on a half-hour trip once a week to get the battery charged up and in good condition. Your local climate will also have to do with the battery life. If the climate is hot, it's a bit harder on the battery than if it is cooler. A lot of hot weather can mean that it isn't able to charge up as well. If there is extreme cold, however, this can make the battery have to work harder. This can damage it and make it last for a shorter time.
