Batteries work on the principle of converting their stored chemical energy into the electrical energy that can provide the spark your engine needs in order to start. Their chemical energy is finite, which is why they need the occasional replacement. Some battery issues can be solved with a few simple tricks, however, allowing you to get the most from your battery.

Consult a mechanic if you begin to experience electrical fluctuations like randomly dimming headlights or if it simply fails to start. While these could be signs your battery is failing, either issue could also be a sign that there’s a problem with your alternator or that your battery just needs its posts cleaned of corrosion.
