In normal internal-combustion vehicles, car and truck batteries can last up to three or four years. However, several factors can influence this lifespan - and some of those factors may sound familiar to Colorado drivers.

Tips to Preserve Your Battery's Lifespan

  • Drive When Necessary: Limiting shorter drives can help keep your battery preserved for longer
  • Keep Battery Clean/Fastened: A battery should stay snug and tightly secured to the terminal underneath the hood. Whenever possible, you should clean the terminal and check for corrosion (rust).
  • Turn Off Lights: When you turn off your Ford, make sure the headlights and interior lights are completely shut off. Even auto-off headlights can drain battery power for every second the outside lights stay active.
  • Minimize Electronic Use: When the car remains idle, the batteries still work to keep the car warm and keep the electronics running. Turning off electronics during longer idle periods minimizes electricity consumption.
  • Schedule a Maintenance Appointment: If you are unsure when you should replace the battery, we can give you a straight answer. Our technicians can test your battery to ensure it still has a full charge, and can perform maintenance to keep the battery preserved.

How to Tell if You Need a New Car Battery

Keep in mind signs of that your car's battery has reached the end of its life. This becomes especially apparent with diminished headlight strength. Other signs may include gradual loss of power, a warped battery, or a persistent pungent smell from under the hood.
