    Corroded Battery Terminals – Cleaning & Repairs in Hamilton

    What causes car battery terminal corrosion?Corroded car battery repair hamilton

    Corrosion on the battery terminals is caused by hydrogen gas being released from the acid in the battery. The hydrogen mixes with other chemicals in your battery such as sulfuric acid, resulting in a build-up forming on your battery’s terminals.

    If it is not cleaned, battery corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between the battery and the rest of your car. This can result in your battery not charging correctly and running out power quickly. To avoid a flat battery, it is recommended that you check your battery terminals for a white build-up routinely. 

     

    Symptoms of battery corrosion:

    Problems starting your car – When a car’s battery terminals are badly corroded, they may not be able to provide the rest of your car with the electrical energy required to start the engine. 

    Battery dying quickly – You may find that your car’s battery is running flat after a short amount of time using the electrical accessories such as the radio or lights. This is due to the battery being unable to charge to its full capacity.

    Visible corrosion on the battery terminals – Perhaps the most obvious symptom of battery corrosion is a white, powdery substance which form around the battery terminals and can be difficult to remove.

     

    Other causes of a flat car battery:

    Corroded terminals are not the only causes of an underperforming car battery. If you have ruled out battery corrosion as the cause, other potential problems include:

    • A faulty alternator or charging system
    • A constant current drain when key is off
    • The battery itself is old and in need of replacement.
