Tips To Drivers

Battery, if well-maintained, it’s smooth, it’s favorable

The battery is a power source for the vehicle, complementing the function of the alternator, which is largely responsible for the generation of electric current required for any car.
 
The main function of the battery is to ensure the ignition, since the alternator is activated only when the vehicle is already in motion. Along with the voltage regulator, evaluates and regulates the electric current produced by the alternator.
 
The current batteries have a useful life of three years and require no maintenance. Still, you need to take some care. If the voltage regulator or even the alternator present some fault, the battery may lose charge and be discarded.
 
In extreme cases, the malfunctioning of the alternator may cause overload, causing the battery to lose electrolyte, internal liquid of the component. This may produce internal sparks and cause an explosion. Therefore, at the slightest sign of any electrical failure, take the vehicle to a more detailed assessment at a workshop. Discharged battery is equal to car stopped.
