The battery is a bit like the heart of the engine. If it works properly, so does your engine, and you enjoy safe and pleasant driving.
Why is the battery important?
The main task of the battery is to provide the energy your engine needs to get gong. t also supports other electronic devices of the car such as lights, radios etc..
How do I know if something is wrong with the battery?
If your car doesn't start or it starts but the starter is working very slowly, this indicates that there is a problem wih your battery. you should also pay attention to the sign of your dashboard that stands for "Battery". If there is a problem with the battery, the sign will be red.
How to avoid problems with your battery
In winter time there is a greater risk because your engine needs more energy to start and the performance of the battery drops at lower temperatures. You aso use more devices that need energy such as lights windscreen heating, tog lights etc This is why most battery problems occur during the winter season.
to avoid problems with the battery, we advice you to:
not leave the car parked with its lights or radio on.
avoid using cars for short distant trips only (the battery requires a 30 - 35 km trip to recharge the energy used to start the the car).
Contact your fasfit as soon as you experience problems.
