What are the main causes of auto battery failure?
Batteries wear out over time, but issues such as improperly connected accessories, infrequent startup, hot temperatures, and high cranking currents caused by freezing temperatures (32 degrees Fahrenheit or colder) can lead to battery failure.
What are the signs of battery failure?
If a battery has failed, the starter will generally not crank the engine. In this instance, you may hear a clicking noise when pushing the vehicle's start button or turning the key. Battery failure may also be reflected in the battery voltage and charging information in the Driver Information Center (DIC) if the battery is not being properly charged by the alternator.
How often should a battery be replaced?
Vehicle batteries last an average of 3-5 years depending on a number of factors, including driving habits and climate. In general, warmer climates will shorten the life of a battery. Also, long periods of time spent in a discharged state tend to increase damage due to sulfation.
