What can drain a car battery?

A car battery is the most vital piece of equipment that basically aids in starting and driving your vehicle. A weak or almost dead battery may invariably leave you stranded in the middle of a road or even affect other components in your car; when such an unfortunate situation presents itself, it’s best to get in touch with Smart Mechanics in Saffron Walden for smart recovery service

Your car battery may drain for various reasons. Some reasons are listed below:

  1. Freezing winter weather and hot summer days may cause problems for your vehicle’s battery and weaken its performance. 
  2. Headlights, or even a very dim dome light, will drain a battery dead overnight.
  3. Frequent short trips can shorten your car battery’s lifespan.
  4. A poorly maintained or weak battery may not hold a charge very well.
  5. The charging system cannot top off your battery while driving if the battery connections have corroded. 

In conclusion, both old and new car batteries can drain if you don’t take care of them in the right way.  If you’re having any battery troubles, bring your car to a vehicle repair shop near you
