What Do Car Batteries Do?

Car batteries provide electricity to the electrical components of your vehicle. Batteries help the car start when you turn the key, so your motor can get going, and you can begin driving.

A car battery also helps keep your engine running by consistently keeping the electric current running through your vehicle. To keep your engine running, it needs a steady flow of energy in addition to gas.

In short, your car battery starts your vehicle and helps keep it going.


Signs Your Battery Might Need to be Repaired or Replaced

You can keep an eye out for a couple of signs that will tell you If your car battery needs to be repaired or replaced. The first is age-car batteries, on average, last roughly three to five years. When your battery hits that age, it might be time for a replacement.

Another symptom to keep an eye out for is that your vehicle is slow to start. When you turn your key, the engine might make a slugging whirring sound longer than usual. You might also turn your key, and your vehicle makes a clicking noise but won't start.

A few other signs to look for are:

  • Dash lights turn on, but the car won't start
  • More frequent jump starts
  • Heavy corrosion or film on the battery
  • Your check engine light comes on
