All vehicles with an internal combustion engine require a starting battery that supplies the voltage for the ignition system and starter to turn over the engine. The battery also stores and provides the electricity to operate all accessories when the engine is off; when the motor is running, the alternator provides the electrical current for accessories like Wiper Blades. If electrical demand exceeds supply from the alternator, the battery provides the voltage to provide all of the energy needed to operate the vehicle’s accessories as you expect. The only limitation is that batteries will eventually lose integrity and won’t be able to hold sufficient voltage. If this happens, it will wreak havoc on your electrical system and accessories’ performance. It is always the best idea to replace a battery before it fails because the consequence is a dead battery and engine that won’t start.
As your vehicle’s battery grows older and is exposed to extreme temperatures fluctuating between seasons, it will start showing signs that it is becoming faulty and will eventually lose its ability to hold any voltage. As a battery grows older, it will likely show signs of the decline before it dies.
