Park in the garage.

If you have the choice to park outside or park inside a garage, then be sure to choose the latter. Keeping your vehicle parked inside a garage will keep your battery warm in the Syracuse winter weather conditions. Doing this will keep your vehicle battery lasting longer.

Keep your battery secure.

If your battery is loose, it could fall over or become dislodged, ultimately causing it to fail. If you notice any rattling in your battery while your vehicle is cruising through the Fayetteville streets, then you’ll want to be sure to have it serviced and secured properly.

Ride longer.

Your vehicle’s battery fully charges on long car rides, and this provides optimal health for your battery. However, if you are constantly taking short trips, you could be doing more harm than good. If you can, use your vehicle for longer rides. If you can’t make that happen, invest in a portable battery car charger.

Mind your lights.

Leaving your lights on, whether your headlights or your interior lights, will drain your battery fairly quickly. Instead, every time you turn your vehicle off, be sure you are turning the lights off all the way, as this will keep your vehicle battery from draining.
