How Exactly Does the Battery Work?

As with any electronic, the battery uses chemicals and electrolytes to maintain optimal power in the car or truck. However, in the case of automobiles, your Subaru uses an alternator to keep the battery charged using an electrical current. Otherwise, the car battery would wear out at the same rate as the average AA or AAA battery and would require more frequent replacement.

When Should the Battery be Changed?

On average, most car or truck batteries will last up to three to five years. However, if you tend to commute more frequently, you might require a replacement battery sooner. Periodically, you may schedule a maintenance appointment to ensure your batter maintains the right electrolyte balance and that it remains free from excessive corrosion.

What Are Some Signs of a Bad Battery?

The most obvious sign of bad battery performance presents itself through a lack of power when cranking the engine or attempting to start the vehicle. Your "battery" dashboard will activate, or the "check engine" light. If you pop the hood, you might notice the battery case swollen or warped in some way, with possible corrosion (rust) on the power nodes. Finally, if you detect a rancid smell of rotten eggs from beneath the engine, you should take this as a clear sign your battery reached the end of its life.
