| The battery plays an important role in the use of the car. If it cannot supply power normally, the engine and the car's power system will follow problems or stall. At the same time, the car ’s power consumption in winter is much larger than in other seasons. After entering the winter, special care for the battery is quite necessary, so as not to worry when you cannot catch fire. |
The battery life is about two years and can be extended if you take good care of it.
First, the battery is most afraid of low temperature. The capacity of the battery in the low temperature environment is much lower than that at normal temperature. A battery that is normally used in a warm place will suddenly lose power in a cold place. Therefore, the electrolyte height should be checked before the cold season arrives. If necessary, the electrolyte of the battery should be replenished, the specific gravity of the electrolyte should be adjusted, and its power storage condition should be checked. If necessary, charge it. At the same time, clean the battery wiring harness and apply special grease to protect it to ensure reliable startup and prolong battery life.
Secondly, if the car is left unused for several weeks in the open air or cold storage, the battery should be removed and stored in a warmer room to prevent the battery from freezing and damaging. When the ambient temperature is lower than minus 10 degrees, the discharged battery will freeze, and the frozen battery must be thawed before charging, otherwise direct charging may cause an explosion, and it is best to use a low current and slow charging. Proper use must also be accompanied by meticulous conservation. The maintenance of the battery is actually not complicated, and you can do it yourself.
In the first step, wipe the outside of the battery with a damp cloth, and wipe off dust, oil, and white powder on the panel and column head (that is, the positive and negative poles) that are likely to cause leakage. Regularly scrub the battery stigma, not only will the white acid powder not accumulate on it, but the battery life will be longer than expected.
The second step is to open the battery water cap to see if the water level is in the normal position. Generally, there are upper and lower limit markings on the side of the battery for your reference. If it is found that the water level is below the subscript line, distilled water must be added-ordinary domestic water cannot be replaced. If distilled water is not available, filtered tap water can be used for emergency. Water should not be added too much. The standard is the middle of the upper and lower markings.
