Car & Truck Battery

 

We can help you choose the right battery for your vehicle and lifestyle. Our staff can safely and professionally install your battery and get you back on the road.

 

Your car's electrical system powers everything from the ignition and fuel systems to accessories such as your radio, headlights and wipers. The electrical system is, in turn, powered by the engine. Here are the three key components of the electrical system:

    Battery

  • When your car's engine is off, the battery provides the required power to the rest of the system, as well as during start-up (cranking). It also supplements the power from the charging system during periods of high demand.

     

    Charging System

  • This is the heart of the electrical system. It consists of three main components: the belt-driven alternator, various electrical circuits, and a voltage regulator. The alternator supplies power to the electrical system and recharges the battery after your car has started. Just like it sounds, the voltage regulator controls the voltage, keeping it within the operating range of the electrical system.

     

    Starting System

  • This system consumes more electrical power than any other component in your car. The starting system consists of three components which work in tandem: the ignition switch, the starter relay or solenoid, and the starter motor. The ignition switch controls the starter solenoid, which activates the starter motor. The starter motor then turns the engine until your car starts.

 

 

 

Your Car's Electrical Charging System.

Your vehicle's battery primarily helps to start the engine. However, it also stores energy generated by the alternator, and runs the secondary electrical systems or additional components in your vehicle. To help you take care of your battery, Retailers with Tire and Service Network:

Danís Auto Serviceís Guide To Battery Maintenance

 

 

In todayís Danís Auto Service auto care blog, we are focusing on battery maintenance. Eventually your car battery will fail and you will need to replace it. In fact, 70% donít even make it four years. There are some things Taberg drivers can do, however, to make their battery last a little longer.

Itís all about the flow of electrical power. When you start your car, the battery uses power to get your engine cranking. As your engine runs, your alternator generates electricity to run all your electrical systems: like lights, a half dozen computers, anti-lock brake system, traction control, power windows, electronic fuel injectors, stability control, air conditioning, transmission servos Ė the list goes on. Any leftover electricity goes to recharge your car battery. Then you turn on your radio and seat heaters; maybe plug in your cell phone and computer; the kids watch a DVD and pretty soon there isnít much extra electricity to go back into the battery.

Now, if you were on a long New York road trip, no sweat Ė youíd have plenty of time to fully recharge your battery. But not if youíre making stops around Taberg. Every time you start your car engine, your battery takes that big hit again. Multiple starts Ė multiple hits. By the time you get home, you have less than a full charge.

When the battery is continuously in a discharged state, it loses its ability to fully recharge. This starts a downward spiral in your battery life. Now when your battery is on its way to getting this bad, your alternator is working overtime trying to keep it charged Ė which causes the alternator to wear out prematurely. A lot of experienced Taberg technicians suggest replacing your battery after five years, even though it hasnít yet failed, as a maintenance item to extend alternator life.

Now, there is something you can do to help your battery last longer by hooking up a battery charger once a month in the summer and every three months in winter. This will ensure your car battery routinely has a full charge. You can do this less often in the winter because the electrochemical process slows down when itís colder and less damage is done when your battery is low. Computerized battery chargers are real easy to use because they monitor and control the charging rate to keep the battery from overheating while itís charging.

We recommend that you ask your considerate Danís Auto Service advisor to test your battery so you know how much life is left. If itís good but needs a maintenance service, heíll have it cleaned up and make sure the connections and cables are good. If itís looking like you ought to replace it, heíll help you with a battery thatís right for your car and driving needs.
