About Car Batteries

Small but mighty, your Kia Soul car battery has a big job. To start your car, batteries provide the initial jolt of electricity to the rest of your car by turning a chemical reaction into an electric reaction. Then, it has to maintain the current to keep your engine running. Without this electricity, your car wouldn’t function. If you’re having a hard time starting your car, your check engine light is on, you smell rotten eggs, or your headlights are dim, it’s likely time for a new battery. Give our Kia SUV service department a call or schedule an appointment online if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

 

Causes of Wear

Your Kia battery should last about three to five years, depending on a variety of factors. If you live in an area that experiences extreme temperatures or weather conditions, like heavy snow or humidity, your car battery may be negatively affected and will need to be replaced sooner. If you find that you make quick drives more often than not, your car battery may not last as long since it isn’t able to fully charge. Finally, be sure that all of your lights are off when you leave the car. Headlamps that are left on are one of the most common causes of a dead battery.
