Car Batteries at Ancira Nissan
Your car’s battery supplies electrical current to your engine. It’s main role is to power the starter, which starts your engine. Once the engine is running, the alternator supplies electricity to your electrical systems.
Signs of a low or failing battery
- Your headlights are dim at idle, but brighten when you rev the engine.
- Your car is reluctant to starting, turning over slowly.
- Gas smell, like rotting eggs – if your battery has been frozen, overcharged, or shorted internally, it can vent gas, giving off a foul odor. If you detect this odor, it’s important to schedule a service appointment. If your battery leaks, the sulfuric acid can cause more damage under the hood.
- Remember – Battery problems and alternator problems can be difficult to tell apart. It’s important to have your car checked regularly.
