Alfa Romeo Battery Replacement
Your battery is one of the hardest-working components in your Alfa Romeo, and it wears down over time. As it gets older and sees more use, it becomes gradually less effective at running the various electrical systems in your vehicle. If your car sits for a long period of time without being driven, it can wear down the battery as well, since various systems are in use that continue operating even when your car isn’t running. Weather conditions can also contribute to wear and tear on your battery. Alfa Romeo of Akron carries a full line of replacement batteries for your Alfa Romeo, identical to the ones installed at the factory. We also carry approved replacement. If you are noticing problems with your vehicle’s electrical system, please don’t hesitate to give us a call and set up an appointment for a battery replacement.
Why Has My Battery Drained?
The battery in your Alfa Romeo has many functions. It’s used to start the car, and it also powers the alarm system while the car is parked. As a result, it is in constant use, and it is slowly being discharged when the car is not running. If your battery has too little charge, it won’t be able to start your Alfa Romeo, and you will need a jump start or the battery will need to be recharged. This isn’t only inconvenient – it’s also bad for your battery, too.
The alternator recharges your battery and powers the electrical system of your Alfa Romeo when the engine is running. However, the battery wears down over time, like any rechargeable battery. After years of charge and discharge cycles, it will need to be replaced. In addition, extreme weather conditions, such as heat and cold, can also affect the battery. Harsh climates will have a negative impact on the life cycle of your battery.
How Can I Tell My Battery is Worn Out?
Like most vehicle systems, your battery will warn you when failure is imminent. Unfortunately, if your battery drains from sitting, there isn’t much you can do to predict that failure. However, cars that see regular use can give you hints as to when it’s time for a battery replacement. If you have noticed that your Alfa Romeo is harder to start, or your lights dim when you use accessories like power windows and locks, it’s time to replace your battery. Typically, batteries average a service life of five years or so. It’s far more convenient to replace your old battery before it dies completely, leaving you stranded and in need of a jump start. Call the service department here at Alfa Romeo of Akron and we will be happy to set you up with an appointment to have your battery replaced.
