No one wants to be stranded on the side of the road and when you are, it can put a wrench in your day. The problem is that most people are in a hurry all day long and when they are out on the road it is because they need to be somewhere. There are lots of things that can leave you stuck on the side of the road. One of them is if you happen to run out of gas or when you are involved in a car accident. You also could start to have trouble with your engine or other parts of the motor. Another problem that you could end up having with the car is when the battery is dead or if the battery is drained. When you have a battery that has been drained and will not start the car you can have a jumpstart. This will get the energy that is needed to start the car and as you drive it will recharge up the battery allowing to use the car like normal again. Citywide Towing Service has what you need to know about jump starting your car or truck.
Why Car Battery Keeps Dying
There are several ways that you could end up with a dead battery. The battery is there to run the car by enabling it to turn the car over and then it will charge back up when it is running. One of the most common ways that a cars battery is being drained is when you leave a light on. This can be an interior light or the headlights that will pull power from the battery. If you leave a light on overnight you will wake up to a dead battery. Another reason is when you will end up with a dead battery is if you have a battery that is bad or there is a problem with other aspects of the car.
How to Tell if Car Battery is Bad
When you go out to start the car or the truck you can tell that the battery is dead when you try to turn over the engine. You should insert the key and turn so that the engine will crank over and the car will start. When the battery is dead the car will usually make a clicking sound instead of turning over. You also may see that the cars lights whether in the car of the headlights dim when you try and start the car. If the car has been completely drained it will not click or turn any of the lights on.
