It's important for Apple Valley car owners to know battery basics. First, let’s talk about which is harder on a battery – hot or cold Minnesota weather. Most Apple Valley drivers think it’s cold weather because that’s when we call on our batteries to have enough power to start a cold car engine.
However, heat does more damage to a battery than cold. Truth is, our batteries start to die a little from day one. Keeping a full charge slows the process, which is hard with short Apple Valley trips because the alternator doesn’t have time to fully recharge the battery from starting the engine. Apple Valley drivers can top off the charge with a computer controlled battery charger – say, once a month in the summer and every three months during the winter. As far as how long a battery will last, statistics show that 70% have given up the ghost within four years. By that time, they aren’t capable of taking a full charge like they used to, and your car alternator has to work overtime to keep up. This causes your alternator to wear out early. If you’re pushing 4 to 5 years on your battery, see your experienced Valley Auto Care service specialist for a battery test to see if it’s recommended to replace it. Not only can you avoid getting stranded with a dead battery, but you’ll save
