Audi Battery Replacement

Of all the critical components and systems found on your Audi, one of the most frequently neglected also happens to be one of the most important -- your battery. Each day, you trust your battery for much more than simply the ignition power required to start your Audi. As a matter of fact, any component that requires electrical power counts on the battery to work properly. Windshield wipers, interior lights, headlights, power windows, power seats, and radios are all examples of features which depend on your battery. Before you find yourself stranded with no power, it's essential to know and understand the condition of your battery.


Car Battery Maintenance Tips

  • Understand Your Local Climate - While it may surprise you, the climate where you life can actually have a measurable impact on the health and lifespan of your battery. Warmer climates tend to have a harsher effect on the performance of your battery than colder climates do.
  • Battery Date Codes - The vast majority of automotive batteries come stamped with a date code on the top or side of the housing, indicating when your battery was manufactured. This code starts with a digit and a letter; 16 would indicate 2016 and it is followed by a letter identifying the month, A representing January, B representing February and so forth. The older your battery is, the more likely that it may need to be replaced.
  • Clamps & Cables - To ensure a reliable connection, take a few seconds to ensure that any loose cables or clamps are secured around the terminals of the battery.
  • Corrosion Buildup - To ensure a reliable connection, take a few seconds to ensure that any loose cables or clamps are secured around the terminals of the battery.
  • Electrical Features - It's considered good practice to switch off features on your Audi which depend on electricity such as fog lights, radio or navigation display screens, or interior lighting when not in use. Turning off these features when they're not being used can help lower excessive drain and help you extend the life of your battery.
