How Should Auto Batteries Be Maintained?

Battery is a very important part of the car, whether it is the car windows, air conditioning and lighting, or even the engine, all need battery to complete. If the battery is not properly maintained, it will not only affect the normal use of the equipment, but also cause potential safety hazards.

Auto batteries need regular maintenance. If the car battery is not used for a long time, it will discharge itself slowly until the power is exhausted and discarded. So it is often said that the car starts at least once a month and runs a little. This is not only to fully run in the engine and gearbox, but also to charge the car battery and play a role in maintaining the car battery.

If the vehicle is stationary for a long time, there is no way to start it regularly. At this time, we should pay special attention to the maintenance of the car battery. If the car battery is not started for a long time, the first thing is to disconnect the car battery from the on-board electrical appliances, so as to prevent the car battery from continuous power loss and final scrap. When disconnecting the car battery, it should be noted that the negative electrode of the car battery should be unplugged first, and then the positive electrode.

Disconnection is the most direct way to protect auto batteries. But what should we pay attention to when we use the car again?

First of all, it is necessary to check whether the appearance of the auto battery has obvious leakage and deformation. If so, it is necessary to replace the new car battery to ensure the safety of the car.

After checking, plug in the positive and negative poles of the auto batteries, start the self inspection of the car electrical appliances, and check whether the electrolyte level of the car battery needs to be supplemented. If supplement is needed, distilled water or special liquid should be added instead of mineral water and tap water.

When starting the engine, it should also be noted that the time for starting the engine should not be more than 5 seconds, and the time interval for restarting should not be less than 15 seconds. If the engine cannot be started, check whether the ignition coil is aged abnormally.

Last but not least, if you need to make up the power, you must not overcharge. Overcharge will directly affect the life of the car battery.
