The first component of your Battery Charging System is the Battery. The Battery’s job is to send electricity to the starter to turn over the engine. The battery stores voltage and is recharged by the Battery Charging System when its voltage dips too low. The Battery Charging System includes the alternator, fuses, sensors, relay, voltage regulator, and wiring. An automotive battery will cycle through hundreds of discharges to the starter and recharges from the Battery Charging System. Most batteries will last two to three years but some factors can cause a battery to wear out faster. The biggest threats to battery life are intense heat and wide temperature fluctuation. This means living in a region with intense summer heat will cause a battery to wear out quickly as evidenced by the battery’s progressive inability to hold a charge. As a battery dies, it places increased stress on the Battery Charging System that must work harder trying to recharge a battery that might be almost dead. Intense heat, temperature change, and working harder than usual can cause a Battery Charging System to develop problems.
