Battery Replacement at Ek Automotive in Edison Park

There is nothing worse then getting stuck with a dead battery.  A car battery is either good or it’s dead, especially during winter when your battery is most likely to call it quits and need to get a jump start.  Don’t let a dead battery keep you at home or stuck on the side of the road.  

Your car battery may be small, but the power it provides is huge. When your battery is dead, your car isn't going anywhere.  You may know that your car battery provides the jolt of electricity required to power all of the car’s electrical components, but it actually does so much more! 

Your battery is closely tied to the car’s starting and charging systems. They all work in unison to convert chemical energy into mechanical energy, and then back again. How does it all tie together? Well, the starter uses mechanical energy to crank the engine. Once the engine is running, the whole system becomes somewhat cyclical. The engine’s rotation drives the alternator, forcing energy into the battery where it’s stored as chemical energy. This chemical energy is converted back into electrical energy to feed the starter and your car’s various accessories. The cycle continues as the engine’s mechanical energy drives the alternator and recharges the battery.
