How to Extend the Life of Your Car’s Battery

February 19th, 2021 by

Your car’s battery plays an integral role in your ability to safely get where you need to go. Batteries help get your car running and they last anywhere from 2-5 years with the right care. Our Nissan car dealer in Illinois can help you get the most out of your Nissan’s battery to help keep you safe year-round.

Be Mindful of the Cold Weather

It’s the middle of winter in Illinois, so it’s only natural for the temperatures to be frigid. Be sure to start your car every so often to ensure the battery hasn’t died as a result of cold weather. You can even test drive your car around the block to make sure that it is still operating as it should be.

Ensure All Lights Are Turned Off

Another reason that customers visit our service department is that they left their lights on overnight, causing their battery to unexpectedly die. Even something as small as leaving your interior car light on or your headlights on overnight can result in a dead battery. Before you lock your car, be sure to double check that no lights are turned on.

Visit Our Service Center Regularly

Did you know that a loose car battery can cause it to die fairly quickly? Visiting our Nissan dealer consistently after making your car purchase gives us a chance to check your battery and make sure the connection is tight. If you drive on bumpy roads often, this is especially recommended.

Whether you’re experiencing battery issues currently or you’re interested in taking preventative measures, our Nissan dealership is here to help! Schedule an appointment with us today to check on the lifespan of your battery.
