How to Prevent Your Vehicle Battery from Dying


Of course, it is optimal to keep your battery from dying at all. This isn’t always possible—eventually, every battery dies out—but there are some things you can do to prolong your battery life for as long as possible.

  1. For starters, make sure you make regular battery tests part of your routine maintenance. When you take your vehicle to Danny’s for an oil change and tire rotation, we automatically check your battery life, but you may need to ask other mechanics for the added service to let you know when it’s time to think about a replacement.

  2. Protect your battery from extreme weather. Garage it during the winter or summer, whenever possible—and if it’s not possible, consider an insulated blanket to keep your battery safe.

  3. If you’re going out of town and won’t be driving the car for a few weeks, see if a friend can come rev it up and take it around the block once or twice, ensuring that the battery stays charged.

  4. Of course, you also want to double and triple check to be sure you aren’t leaving lights or appliances on when the vehicle isn’t running—these are major drains on the battery life.


Battery life is something you can extend through regular, preventative maintenance. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment for a battery test, we invite you to reach out to Danny’s Automotive today. Ask us how we can help you keep your vehicle battery in good working order!
