We know from years of experience inspecting and replacing automotive batteries that the greatest threats to your battery are extreme temperatures and significant temperature changes between seasons. Michigan’s climate is a significant limitation to the life of your battery because we have hot summers, frigid winters, and considerable temperature change between seasons. It is for this reason that the average automotive battery in our area will only last for a couple of years at peak performance in terms of cold-cranking amps and reserve capacity. When a battery starts losing integrity in storing or providing voltage, it needs to be replaced quickly before it dies and you get stuck with an immovable vehicle.
Since merely living in Michigan can cause battery problems given the climate, we usually recommend getting a Battery Inspection & Testing Service at least annually if you want to decrease the chances of a defective battery causing your vehicle electrical problems. However, the absolute best way to almost guarantee that you will never have a battery malfunction is with a Battery Inspection & Testing Service proactively between hot and cold seasons or if you start experiencing any warning signs of a Battery problem. By taking a proactive approach to battery maintenance, it is unlikely that you will experience any problems; however, if you start experiencing any of the warning signs of a battery problem, it will always be a good idea to get a Battery Inspection & Testing Service as soon as possible to prevent worsening symptoms. Here are the warning signs of a battery problem signaling a need for Battery Inspection & Testing Service:
