Modern cars are as much electrical as mechanical. They simply would not work without the electrical system that runs the vast number of vital functions, as well as high-tech features. Your electrical system is also a crucial component for advanced driver assistance systems, such as collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control. Simply for the reason of safety, your vehicle’s electrical system should be checked during routine maintenance.
The battery is the backbone of that electrical system. It supplies power to the starter and ignition system, delivers the extra power needed when the electrical load exceeds the alternator’s supply, and stabilizes voltage in the electrical system. That’s a big job for a relatively small part of your vehicle, so no wonder it gets worn out!
Your vehicle’s battery, and it’s connections, should be checked at every oil change because they don’t always give warning signs before they fail. When choosing a replacement, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all battery. Talk to us at Hesp Automotive about finding the right fit.
