The battery in your vehicle is like its heart. Its primary function y is to start the engine by powering the starter motor, providing electric power to the spark plugs in order to ignite the fuel. The battery also provides power for other components such as lights, horn and climate control system. The typical battery is a “wet-cell” battery, a plastic box containing sulfuric acid and lead, with two terminals on the top or side.

A battery is the most underrated, but the most important piece of equipment your car needs to drive. If it fails, you cannot even start your vehicle, let alone operate the accessories. When a battery gets old (3-4 years) it can eventually start to wear out and you will find yourself in need of a car battery replacement. However, if you’ve got a new battery under your hood and it keeps dying, there may be some other reasons why it keeps dying.

There are the few reasons Why your Car Battery Keeps Dying? Here is a list of common culprits:

  1. Lights left on. Headlights, or even a very dim dome light, will drain a battery dead overnight.  
  2. Weak battery. Small drains, such as the memory function in your car radio, or perhaps the glove box left open overnight, may kill a weak battery that can’t hold a charge. 
  3. Poor battery connections. Corroded or loose battery connections can prevent the charging system from topping off your battery when you are driving. 
  4. Short Drives. Starting and stopping your vehicle before the alternator has time to recharge the battery may be one reason why your car battery keeps dying prematurely.  
  5. Faulty Alternator. In order for your car battery to recharge, your vehicle’s alternator must provide it with energy. Loose or stretched belts and worn parts can prevent an alternator from sending a charge to the battery. 
  6. Extreme Temperatures. Temperatures that get above 100 degrees or below 10 degrees Fahrenheit is hard on your car battery, especially if it is getting to the end of its life. A build-up of lead sulfate crystals can occur, increasing the amount of time your battery needs to be recharged.

Tip to Remember: It is a fact that every battery will die eventually. Remember that the key to prolonging the life or your battery and avoiding a premature car battery replacement is to keep it well-maintained and in good working order.
