Audi Ann Arbor Auto Battery Service

One of the most commonly overlooked components in your Audi is the battery. It's also one of the most important. Your battery is responsible for more than just your ignition needed to start the car. Every component on your vehicle that requires electrical power depends on the battery to work properly. Power windows, power seats, headlights, windshield wipers, interior lights, and radio components are all examples of features that rely on the battery to operate as they should. That's why it's important to know the condition of your battery before it leaves you stranded.

Car Battery Maintenance Tips

  • Understand Your Climate - Where you live can have an impact on the lifespan of your battery. Warmer climates tend to have a harsher impact on the performance and life of your battery than colder climates.

  • Date Codes - Listed on the top of side of your battery will be a date code telling you when your battery was manufactured. The code starts with a digit and a letter; 15 would indicate 2015 and it is followed by a number denoting the month A being January, B being February and so on. The older your battery is, the more likely it may need to be replaced.

  • Cables and Clamps - To ensure a good connection, make sure to properly secure any loose clamps or cables around battery terminals.

  • Corrosion Buildup - Gradually over time corrosion can begin to collect around battery terminal posts. Making sure your battery terminals are free of corrosion is an excellent way to ensure reliable performance. Excessive corrosion buildup is also a common symptom of a dying battery.

  • Electrical Features - Make it a habit to switch off electrical components such as interior lighting, the radio, and fog lights when not in use. Leaving these features off when they're not needed can help reduce excess drain and will extend the life of your battery.
