What is the Purpose of a Car Battery?

There are few things worse than being met with the last gasping breath of your car’s battery when you hop in expecting to hear the familiar rev of the engine. It helps to know a few things about the battery’s purpose as well as some signs that it might need to be serviced.

The battery provides the electricity to start the engine and provides the charge for the vehicle’s electrical system to function. It sends power to the fuel system, the starter, and the ignition, as well as the lights. A battery should last about five years, but can be affected by weather extremes, for example.

If you notice your car is slow to start, it may need service. The next time you’re in Springfield, stop by Kelley Sales & Service. We’d be happy to inspect its connections and cables as well as run a diagnostic check-up.
