Automotive Tips from The Plains Service Center: Making a Battery Last Longer

Posted April 28, 2019 8:22 AM

One thing all The Plains drivers can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. The Plains Service Center can help maintain your battery.

Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very harmful to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined.

Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life. Either an extended drive at freeway speeds around the The Plains are or using a battery charger will preserve your battery’s ability to hold a full charge.

Give us a call.
