Cars need the electrical power produced by batteries for many different purposes, including starting the engine, storing electrical energy, and supplying electrical power to the engine. Cars use battery power to operate electrical systems when the alternator is not running, including headlights, stereo, and most dashboard control operations. Car batteries are charged by the alternator, but starting and stopping the engine within a short time span can cause the battery to die, because the alternator needs about 20 minutes of engine power to fully charge a drained battery. Leaving electronics or lights running while the car is off will drain power from the battery, and extreme temperatures can cause a car battery to fail. Severe cold or heat can cause problems with a battery’s chemical reaction needed to generate power. If you are experiencing battery problems, then you may need a jump start to get going again.
If you find yourself with a dead battery, there’s no need to panic. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you get your vehicle up and running. If you don’t know how to jump start your vehicle or no one else is around to help, give us a call. Incorrectly connected jumper cables can destroy your battery or even your entire engine control computer. After a member of our service staff arrives on the scene, he or she will determine whether the problem lies with the battery or with a different part of your vehicle. If a dead battery is the source of your issues, our staff member will handle the jumpstart process from start to finish so that you don’t have to worry. Just give us a call when you’re in need of assistance.
