Car battery failure is a common cause of vehicle breakdown in the UK, with 70,000 roadside recovery call-outs a year from battery failure alone.
There are a number of reasons why a car battery could fail such as:
- Extreme weather conditions
- You car being left for long periods
- Age of the car battery
- Accidentally leaving your lights on
The average lifespan of a car battery is between 5 and 7 years, but this can vary based on a number of factors including how often and how long the car is driven, temperature variation, the age of your car, and any additional electronic features installed (including alarms and sensors) that are active even when your car is not in use.

WHAT IS A CAR BATTERY?
This may seem obvious to most but some people are not sure. A car battery is found in all vehicles including vans, trucks and domestic vehicles. It stores energy created when the engine is running and perhaps most importantly is used to start the engine.
WHEN DO I NEED A CAR BATTERY REPLACEMENT?
There are a number of signs to look out for when you need a car battery replacement:
If the battery is flat, it will have trouble starting the car’s engine. Sometimes this is accompanied by a clicking noise from the starter motor.
You may find that the electric components in your car aren’t working as well as they should be, such as problems with the lights, radio, air conditioning and even wipers could be attributed to a failing battery.
If the car battery has become over-charged you might notice a smell similar to rotting eggs. That is the smell of the acid in your battery boiling over because it cannot cope with the amount of power it is creating.
If this happens to your battery it is recommended that you have it checked immediately to ensure that the sulphuric acid in the battery does not pose a risk to yourself or your car’s internal components.
WHICH CAR BATTERY DO I NEED?
When looking for a car battery replacement it is important to make sure you’re getting exactly the right type of battery for your car.
If you purchase a car battery with a lower capacity rating than recommended for your vehicle, this can result in poor performance, plus if the car battery is from the wrong group size, it might not match up to your car’s terminal locations.
