Many people think of their vehicles’ batteries as things that go on working until–well, until they do not. At that point, it is time to purchase a replacement, but have you ever wondered whether you could extend the life of a car battery?
One of the most common causes of battery problems is corrosion, which tends to happen around the cables that connect to the terminal. You can easily scrub away this corrosion with baking soda, a little water, and a wire brush– be sure to put on some gloves to protect your hands, first. Cleaning away that corrosion is a simple step most drivers can take on their own.
You can also perform a visual inspection of your battery to ensure there are no visible cracks, leaks, or other kinds of damage. Doing so regularly can help you stay on top of potential problems before they have the chance to worsen.
