Kia Car Battery
A vehicle’s battery sends power and engages the starter and runs all of the bells and whistles on your vehicle. The average lifespan of a battery is three years. What affects battery lifespan?
- Leaving lights on when car is turned off
- Leaving a phone charger or other device plugged into your USB port
- Extreme temperature fluctuations or excessive heat or cold
