A good car battery is essential to the health of your Jeep, and if you neglect it, you might find yourself here at Arrigo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Sawgrass far sooner than you would expect.

The first is your battery interacts with several parts of your vehicle than you might think, and it can harm all these parts of your vehicle if they are damaged. If your car battery is poorly maintained, your car has the possibility of being completely shut down until you get it replaced. We will cover why your battery is so important and how it works and if you need to have your battery replaced, be sure to head down to Arrigo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Sawgrass!

What does your battery do and how does it work?

Your Jeeps battery is the central power hub for your vehicle, and it controls all electrical things. Your battery stores the electricity and then sends jots of it out to every single area of your vehicle. Not only is the power sent to all electrical components, but the electrical current in your Jeep is kept steady, which means that your Jeep will start and has plenty of electrically to stay running. By the same token, how your battery works is quite simple. It converts chemical energy to electrical energy, which is needed to power your Jeep. Your Jeeps starter is a component that interacts with birth your battery and the engine. You should think of it as a middle man as it takes power from the battery when you turn the key and send it to the engine so you can crank it or turn it over. It’s important to note that your starter draws a lot of electricity, and it can only be used for the amount of time it takes to start your car. If it’s not, your Jeep’s battery would be drained of its remaining charge. Once the engine starts, the alternator takes over as it keeps your engine running and maintains the charge. Your battery will also always be available on 12 volts of electricity.

How long does your battery last?

Your Jeeps battery will typically last between three and five years. This doesn’t mean that your battery will be functioning at optimal capacity during that time frame. After the third year, your battery is considered past its prime. However, it can last longer than three years if healthy enough. The life expectancy of your battery depends on more than keeping it healthy. There are other factors, such as your driving habits and weather conditions, which can shorten the life of your battery as well. There are multiple signs of figuring out if your battery is old or experienced problems. Two common ones are the check engine light or your engine struggling to turn over. If you want to know how old your battery is, check out the date that’s printed on it. Your battery needs to be checked and maintained regularly, so be sure to head down to Arrigo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Sawgrass and have our techs check it out!

Why is your battery important?

Why is all of this information important? Well, as we have stated, your battery is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Without it, your Jeep won’t start. Your battery also stores a lot of electricity, and if it can’t properly contain all of that power, it can cause damage to the starter or charging system. Not only will your Jeeps engine be rendered useless, but it adds to the cost of your vehicle running again.

How your battery can harm your vehicle

Do you know what happens when you sprain your ankle or burn your hand? You will put weight on the other foot or use your other hand. The same applies to your Jeep. If your battery is weak or damaged, your Jeep’s system will try to find a way to keep it running. Therefore, added pressure is put on the other parts of your vehicle, like the alternator or starter. Eventually, these parts will malfunction because they are drawing excessive voltage to compensate for the lack of stored energy in the battery. This will not only make your Jeep’s engine less efficient but can also lead to an extensive repair. It’s also best to think twice before having someone jump a dead battery. If your battery dies because there is a short in the system, it will kill the battery of the person trying to jump it.

Keeping your battery healthy

With your battery, good care is all about taking preventative measures. There are times when you won’t know something is wrong until you start your car and the engine won’t turn over. The first preventive measure you can take is to test your battery regularly by heading down to Arrigo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Sawgrass. Typically, your battery should carry a charge of 12 volts. You should also keep your battery terminals and positive and negative posts clean, and if you see some greenish white stuff around your battery, that’s corrosion. This tends to happen with older batteries. You can take a corrosion cleaning solution and a wire brush and clean those terminals. If the corrosion is built upon a new battery, or it happens shortly after then, you need to get it looked at as that might indicate a more serious issue. Always make sure to drive with the health of your Jeep in mind and keep it parked somewhere warm during the winter and cool in the summer. This will ensure that you keep your battery a long time!
