What Does the Battery Do?

On the surface, your car's battery may seem pretty insignificant, but this little black box sitting under the hood is actually a key component that affects almost every part of your car. Your battery is in charge of providing power to your car - and when we say your car, we pretty much mean the entire car. The battery provides a jolt of electricity to your car's starter, which in turn allows your car's engine to turn on and get you where you need to go. Without this jolt of electricity, your car will not start. As you drive, your car's battery will give your engine a constant supply of energy to make sure it stays running. We hope that this paints a pretty specific picture of your battery's importance.

Signs You Need Your Battery Replaced

So, now you know exactly how important your car's battery is. Now, it's time to learn when to replace your battery. As a general rule of thumb, it's a good idea to replace your car's battery every three years. While it can be comforting that this isn't something you need to worry about often, be sure to keep track of when your battery was installed so that you can get it replaced when needed.

However, there are many factors that can adversely affect your battery's health. Extreme temperatures - both hot and cold - can significantly impact your battery's longevity. When the bitter cold of winter or the sweltering heat of Hyattsville summer impacts your car, be sure to watch out for the following signs:

  • Misshapen battery case
  • Battery fluid leak
  • Corrosion around terminals
  • Cracked battery case or damaged terminals
  • Engine takes a while to start
  • Your car's electronics are not working as well as usual
  • Battery light turns on

While some of these signs may seem obvious, others may creep up unnoticed. Noticing that your car's dashboard lights are dimmer than usual, for example, is a common indicator that your battery is on its last legs. If you notice any of the above signs, be sure to head over to Ourisman Mitsubishi's service center near Alexandria to get your battery replaced.

What Happens if You Don't Get Your Battery Replaced in Time?

Picture this for a moment: You overslept, and now you're running late for work. You throw on the cleanest clothes you can find, pour a (quite large) cup of coffee into your travel mug, grab your important documents, and burst out the door without a second to spare. You think you're going to make it to that important meeting just in time. You open your car's door, take your seat, and put your key in the ignition. Finally, you turn the key and - nothing.

Chances are, something like this may have happened to you at some point in your life and you know just how frustrating it is. Dead batteries aren't fun, so be sure to watch out for the warning signs that your battery needs to be replaced so that you can avoid any unfortunate situations in the future.
