Audi Battery Replacement

Of the numerous components found on your Audi, one of the most commonly overlooked is also one of the most important -- your battery. Every day, you count on your battery for much more than simply the ignition power needed to start your vehicle. In fact, every component found on your vehicle that requires electrical power relies on the battery to function properly. Radio components, power seats, power windows, headlights, interior lights, and windshield wipers are all examples of features which depend on your battery. Before it leaves you stranded, it's important to know and understand the condition of your battery.

Car Battery Maintenance Tips

  • Know Your Climate - It may seem surprising, but where you live can actually have an impact on the lifespan and health of your battery. Warmer climates are known to have a harsher impact on the performance of your battery than colder climates.
  • Date Codes - Stamped on the top side of your battery will be a date code which indicates when your battery was manufactured. The code begins 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 forth. The older your battery is, the greater likelihood that it may need to be replaced.
  • Clamps & Cables - In order to provide a good connection, take the time to ensure that any loose clamps or cables are properly secured around battery terminals.
  • Corrosion Buildup - As time passes, corrosion can start to collect around battery terminal posts. Make sure your battery terminals are clean and free of corrosion to ensure reliable performance. Excess buildups of corrosion can also be a common sign of a weak or dying battery.
  • Electrical Features - It's a good habit to switch off features of your vehicle which rely on electricity such as interior lighting, radio and navigation display screens, or fog lights when not in use. Turning these features off when they're not needed can help reduce excessive drain and can help extend the life of your battery.
