Keep Your Battery Serviced for Proper Function

Since the battery is an essential component of your vehicle, it's important to service it on a regular schedule. When you get your oil changed, have someone at MINI of Charleston test your battery to ensure that it has a positive charge. You can also have your alternator checked as well since these parts often work together.

There are a few things that you can do to maintain your battery so that it doesn't need to be replaced as often. Avoid leaving your lights on when they aren't needed. Turn off other electrical components while your car is parked and not running so as not to drain the battery until you do get back on the road.

When you're changing your battery, wear the proper protection so that you don't get shocked when touching the posts and cables. Try not to drop the new battery that you plan to put in the car, as it could crack.
