Battery Centre

Even a new battery can go bad quickly if your truck, SUV or sedan has a faulty electrical charging system. The problem may be your vehicle's alternator, which recharges the battery whenever you drive. A worn out or damaged alternator may not produce enough electricity to replenish the power used during driving--starting the vehicle, operating lights and other equipment such as power windows and smart phones.

Look for the warning signs of battery fatigue: difficulty with vehicle starting, low headlight intensity, power accessories that are sluggish (lift gates or windows that operate slower than normal).
