You're late for work and rush out to your car, only to
find that it won't start. The headlights are dim and
the engine simply refuses to turn over. You realize
that your battery is dead. How did this happen?
A car battery is the most crucial piece of equipment
to starting and driving your vehicle. It sends power
from the starter motor to the sparks plugs, igniting
your car’s fuel, while also giving other systems
power. This includes lights, radio, air conditioning, and
more. You may be able to tell when your car battery
starts to die if you find it difficult to start, have
flickering lights, or a weakening alarm system
Your car battery may begin to drain for 8 reasons:
1. Human Error
You’ve probably done this at least once in your life –
you come home from work, tired and not really
thinking, and left the headlights on, didn't completely
close the trunk, or even forgot about some internal
lights. Overnight the battery drains, and in the
morning your car won’t start. Many new cars alert
you if you’ve left your lights on, but may not have
alerts for other components.
2. Parasitic Drain
Parasitic drain is due to components in your vehicle
continuing to run after the key is turned off. Some
parasitic drain is normal – your battery delivers
enough energy to keep things, like your clock, radio
presets, and security alarm operational at all times.
However, if there's an electrical problem – such as
faulty wiring, poor installation, and defective fuses –
parasitic drain can exceed what's normal and deplete
the battery.
3. Faulty Charging
If your charging system isn’t working properly, your
car battery can drain even while you’re driving. Many
cars power their lights, radio, and other systems from
the alternator, which can make the battery drain
worse if there's a charging problem. The alternator
may have loose belts or worn-out tensioners that
keep it from working properly.
4. Defective Alternator
A car alternator recharges the battery and powers
certain electrical systems like lights, radio, air-
conditioning, and automatic windows. If your
alternator has a bad diode, your battery can drain.
The bad alternator diode can cause the circuit to
charge even when the engine is shut off, and you
end up in the morning with a car that won’t start.
5. Extreme Temperature
Whether extremely hot (over 100 degrees Fahrenheit)
or cold (under 10 degrees Fahrenheit), temperatures
can cause lead sulfate crystals to build-up. If the car
is left in such conditions for too long, the sulfate
buildup can damage long-term battery life. It may
also take a long time for your battery to charge in
these environments, especially if you only drive short
distances.
6. Excessive Short Drives
Your battery may wear out before its time if you
take too many short drives. The battery puts out the
most power when starting the car. Shutting off your
vehicle before the alternator has a chance to
recharge could explain why the battery continues
dying or doesn’t seem to last long.
7. Corroded or Loose Battery Cables
The charging system cannot top off your battery
while driving if the battery connections have
corroded. They should be checked for dirt or signs of
corrosion and cleaned using cloth or a toothbrush.
Loose battery cables make it difficult to start the
engine too, as they cannot transfer the electrical
current efficiently.
8. Old battery
If your battery is old or weak, it will not hold a full
charge well. If your car consistently won't start, it’s
possible that the battery is worn out. You should
generally replace your car battery every 3-4 years. If
old, or poorly maintained, your battery may die on a
regular basis.
What to do with a battery that keeps dying:
Having a battery that won't hold a charge is
frustrating, and figuring out what's causing the
problem can be tricky. Assuming that the cause of
the battery drain is not human error, you will need
the assistance of a qualified mechanic who can
diagnose your car's electrical problems and determine
if it's a dead battery or something else in the
electrical system.
