One of the most integral parts of any new or used vehicle are the batteries and they can be hazardous if you do not know what you are doing when it comes time to replace an old battery. An aged battery can run risks like leaking acid which is dangerous to both you and the environment, as well as make it more difficult to start your vehicle when you need it, and overall increasing the chances of becoming stranded. Ewald's Milwaukee Service Center is here to help you figure out what you need and learn about some basic battery safety and find the right car battery in Milwaukee for you.
The standard structure of a car battery is composed of six cells, which generates the power your vehicle uses. The cells will lose charge over time and in some cases you can even end up with a completely drained cell, meaning that your vehicle is not getting the essential power that it needs. In more severe cases, an old battery can begin to leak a powerful acid that will eat through most materials, which can damage your car and even harm you if you aren't careful, and there are even more severe cases when an old battery can explode. An exploding battery will cause great damage to your vehicle, and possibly to you or others, so if this should happen you would be looking at paying for more than just a new battery.
During the winter months when the temperature drops, the speed, and ease, with which your battery works decreases, which means that when you have an old battery with low or dead cells it can be a struggle to get your vehicle started, and further increases the chances of being stranded in the cold. Ewald's Milwaukee Auto Service Center highly suggests getting your battery tested as soon as the weather begins to cool down, so you will know if and when you need to replace your battery.
Batteries will also lose their power over time, regardless of use. If your vehicle has been in disuse for a while, then it is always a good idea to have it tested and checked out at one of Ewald’s Auto Service Centers in Milwaukee, to help ensure that your car is in working order. Even if you have your battery jumped by another vehicle you should still get your car batteries serviced. In some cases, it may be an alternator issue, dead cells, or simply running the battery too low but the only sure fire way to know is to have your battery and your vehicle serviced at Ewald’s Milwaukee Car Service Center.
