Your battery is a key component of your vehicle and powers all the various electronic systems in your car or van. The starter motor, lights and wipers, air conditioning and radio all draw power from the battery.
However, as with any battery, it begins to show signs of wear and reduced efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll need to get your car battery checked and possibly replaced.

The loss of the electrical energy stored in the battery is normal when your car hasn’t been started for several weeks as it hasn’t been recharged by the alternator.
In winter, the battery loses charge faster due to the drop in temperature. Keeping a car battery charger handy can help you to start your engine if your battery runs flat.
Check your vehicle’s handbook for information about replacing your timing belt. If not replaced at the correct time and the belt breaks, the alternator won’t be able to charge the battery.
