Q&A

The right fit for your vehicle depends on a range of factors - some within your control, others not at all - from environmental conditions and climate, to driving habits and the use of powered accessories. While every car battery looks more or less the same to the untrained eye, our car experts know their secrets - identifying your next battery from a list of qualifying questions and a detailed look at your car.

Catch your battery before it dies by tuning into your car and paying close attention to those little quirks you've been putting down to age. Does your engine having trouble starting? Are your accessories failing to light up? Have you had to jump start your car a lot lately or does the battery look like it's seen better days, cracked, swollen and leaking fluid? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, it's time to visit mycar for a battery assessment.

When you turn the key to start the vehicle a lot of things happen, the first thing that will happen is that the battery in your car will start to lose voltage.

The reason for this is that the battery is concentrating on turning the starter motor to make the vehicle start. Once the vehicle starts then the alternator charges the battery back-up. So, the battery will constantly drain and recharge every single time you start and drive your vehicle.

The next thing that will happen is that the starter motor’s gears will try and engage with the flywheel or ring gear of the engine. To make an engine start it must be turned at speed; this will allow fuel and air to be drawn into the cylinders, compress it and make the vehicle start.

In simple terms, the battery provides the power, the starter motor turns the ring gear on the flywheel which turns the engine, add a bit of fuel, air and spark, and the engine should start. So think about how many times you start your car every week, the above is happening on a regular basis.

 

Battery failure is one of the leading causes of starting trouble, whether because of lights being left on, a charging system problem, or the battery has met its life expectancy. Over time these components will eventually wear out. Things that can speed up your battery wearing out are:

  • Charge rates
  • Excessive vibration
  • High loads
  • Electrical system faults
  • Loose or dirty terminals
  • Stop/start driving
  • Sulphation
