A dead battery is by far the biggest reason breakdown services get called out.
Here are three common reasons why your battery could fail:
- Old Age - You will need to replace the battery
- Lights, radio etc left on - Recharge the battery
- Alternator not charging the battery - You will need to have your alternator checked
To reduce the risk of this happening to you, you should check your battery every month and in the winter every week. Most new batteries are sealed, however, if you have one that is not you should have the water level checked and topped off.
