Service Tip
Factors Affecting Battery Life

A few factors can weaken batteries and make that “Replace Battery” result appear sooner than expected.

HEAT damages batteries by accelerating internal corrosion and water loss. The damage isn’t always evident until low temperatures hit and the vehicle demands more current from the battery.

AGE may indicate an imminent failure. After three or four years, previous seasonal temperatures may have already weakened the battery’s starting power.

SEVERE DISCHARGING can damage a battery’s capacity to crank the engine. If the battery has shown any problems starting the vehicle, it may be an indication of a drained battery about to fail.
