Leaving the lights and electronics of the vehicle on

Leaving the exterior and the interior lights of the vehicle can drain your battery dry. Lights such as headlights have to be turned off when the car is not running. Some cars come with the feature of the lights getting automatically off but all cars do not have this function. Hence in order not to end up with a dead battery you have to manually off all the lights when the car is not running and is idle. Electronics of the battery should also be kept turned off while the vehicle is not on the road running. The charge of the car battery is maintained on driving it and cannot keep the lights and electronics functioning without the working of the engine which charges the battery.

Battery which is old and is in worn out condition

Battery has a lifespan and they can work properly for four to five years without any problem. Once the battery becomes old and worn out with short trips, extreme temperature and every day use it will no longer be useful and you will have to buy a new battery. Maintenance of battery also plays a major role in its smooth working. A battery with routine servicing and maintenance will be able to hold its power and charge for longer time. If the battery is not working even after trying to jump start the battery then it shows that it is longer useable.

Loose Cables, corrosion and electrical issues

Cables which are attached to the terminals of the battery when not secured tightly can lead to battery discharge. Cables are usually disconnected when service is done. It is important to reconnect the cables to the right terminal in the right manner. Professionals can do this easily without causing any damage to the car and by avoiding unexpected shocks. Corrosion and rust on the battery can also lead to battery issue. During service this will be cleaned by the professional service providers. Other electrical issues like worn out tensioners, loose belt connections also leads to faulty battery

Faulty Alternator

Alternator provides flow of power to the different accessories of the vehicle like car alarm, window locks, air conditioning etc. It recharges the battery when the car is on gear. A defective alternator will not recharge the battery and will drain the battery eventually making the battery dead.
