If your car’s battery ceases to work, so does your car. This is because engine ignition, exterior and interior lights, climate control and windscreen wipers are all powered by this automotive battery.
The majority of vehicular breakdowns are caused by a flat or faulty battery. There are a number of reasons why this can happen. For instance, taking lots of short trips (which doesn’t allow the battery enough time to charge) or a defective electrical connection can cause a flat battery.
If the battery is flat, it’s possible to jump-start your vehicle by connecting cables from another automobile’s working battery to your own, but this isn’t always advisable. If your car’s battery is cracked, for example, it might be leaking acid.
Rather than wait for your Dacia’s battery to lose charge or fail completely, we recommend that you have it checked every 24 months (or 12,000 miles). Typically, a battery should be replaced every 48 months (or 37,000 miles).
At RMB Dacia, we provide battery maintenance among our wide range of servicing options, with replacements costing as little as £49.
