Don’t be inconvenienced by a flat battery this summer
Virtually everyone has experienced that sinking feeling – the one that comes right after you jump in the car, turn the key…and nothing happens. Quite simply, there’s never a good time for a battery to go flat.
Often, the cause is a simple accident, like leaving your interior light on overnight in older vehicles, or instead simply a matter of battery age. But sometimes, there are warning signs that your battery is on the way out, and by taking notice of these signs, you might just be able to avoid that sinking feeling.
Signs your battery may be fading
- When you start the car, the engine is slower than usual to turn over.
- If you start your car in the evenings you may notice the headlights dim.
- The check engine indicator lamp may come on whenever you start your car.
- Most cars have a battery charge warning light on the dashboard. If this light is on, it generally indicates the cars charging system is not working correctly which will most likely result in a flat battery.
- The fluid level in your battery has dropped below the lead plates (some batteries have a viewing panel that allows you to visually check the level).
Call in the experts
The average car battery lasts around one and-a-half year (possibly less if you usually take short trips in stop/start traffic). So if you’ve experienced some of the symptoms listed above, now might be a good time to call in the experts.

Take care when handling batteries, as incorrect handling can cause serious injuries. Batteries contain sulphuric acid and give off explosive hydrogen gases, so they should always be kept away from naked flames. They should also be kept away from children.

Small engines typically use lead-acid batteries, which store electrical energy using lead plates and sulfuric acid. The electrolyte fluid in the battery loses its sulfuric acid and gains water as the battery is discharged.
Battery electrolyte is extremely corrosive and can cause severe burns to eyes and skin. Batteries produce hydrogen gas that can cause an explosion if ignited by a spark or open flame.
Minimize safety hazards by observing these precautions:
- Follow the manufacturer’s recommended procedure for charging, removal and disposal.
- ALWAYS hold a battery upright to avoid spilling electrolyte.
- Wear protective eyewear and clothing when handling batteries.
- If electrolyte spills on skin or splashes in an eye, flush immediately with lots of cold water and contact a physician immediately.
Service batteries in a well-ventilated area, away from sources of sparks or flames.
