Batteries are an extremely important part of any new or used vehicle and can be dangerous if you are not sure of what to do when it comes time to replace them. Old batteries can make it harder to start your car, can leak acid, and increase the chances of being strand. Ewald's Milwaukee Service Center is here to help you figure out what you need and learn about some basic battery safety and find the right car battery in Milwaukee for you.
A standard car battery is made of six cells, which provide the power for your vehicle. As a battery ages, the cells start to lose power and you can even end up with a completely dead cell, meaning that your battery is not producing enough power to support your car. In more extreme cases, a battery can start to leak acid that will eat through most materials, this is harmful to both you and your car, if you are unlucky your battery can explode. When a battery leaks or explodes, you are looking at more than just the cost to replace a battery, you are looking at a lot of service charges to fix other numerous things in your car.
During the winter months when the temperature drops, making sure your battery is strong and fully charged is important. Why? Because as the temperature lowers, the speed at which a battery works is decreased and with low or dead cells, it can be a fight to get your car started. Ewald's Milwaukee Auto Service Center highly recommends getting your battery checked when the temperature starts to drop, that way you can replace your battery before you end up stranded in the middle of winter.
Batteries will also lose their charge as they sit, regardless of use. If your vehicle has been sitting around for a month or two, it is also a good idea to get your battery serviced at one of Ewald’s Auto Service Centers in Milwaukee, to make sure that nothing has gone wrong since you last used your car.

In some cases it may be an alternator issue, dead cells, or simply running the battery too low. They only way to know is to get it checked at Ewald’s Milwaukee Car Service Center.
