The connection between your battery and the electrical items it powers is relatively complicated, and relies on the correct functioning of several components: battery, alternator, and the ignition modules.
How to tell if your vehicle is having battery trouble
There are many factors that put pressure on your car battery and surrounding components, slowly causing wear and tear and loss of performance. Edmonton’s sometimes harsh weather and driving conditions require your battery to work a lot harder, and such conditions often lead to the need for more frequent servicing of your battery and ignition modules.
Various features found in some modern vehicles are also known to cause your car battery to degrade or wear out faster – entertainment systems, advanced engine trouble detection systems, and luxury electrical items, all put a lot of pressure on your car’s battery.
The degradation of performance, or even total failure, of your vehicle’s electrical accessories is usually the first sign that your battery is experiencing problems. Dimming or flickering headlights and interior lights, and/or the warning lights on your dashboard, indicates that your battery or one of its related components is failing.
