Signs of Failure

Although batteries can sometimes fail without warning, there are some common signs to look for:

  • The turnover of the engine is sluggish when starting
  • The battery light on the dashboard comes on or stays on longer when the vehicle is started

Batteries may also run flat for other reasons that are not related to the battery performance. These include lights being left on, alternator issues and vehicle earthing problems.

Factors contributing to battery failure

Most batteries should last for 5 to 7 years. However, car and van batteries will naturally diminish with age due to the constant chemical process involved in the charging cycle.

Batteries also fail for a number of different reasons:

  • Cold temperatures affect their performance and the extra strain of lights and heaters in the winter puts them under further pressure
  • Lack of use or continual short journeys will be detrimental to the performance
  • Long hot spells can cause corrosion and premature failure
