Small Part, Big Power

When you pop the hood of your Ford Explorer and take a look underneath, you may think that the car battery looks pretty insignificant compared to everything else that gets your vehicle moving. But the battery is, without a doubt, one of the most essential parts of your vehicle. While it may look small, it delivers enough power to start the engine, power the headlights and radio, and keep electrical features like the windshield wipers functioning.

While weather conditions (especially cold weather), driving habits, and power needs can significantly reduce it, the typical lifespan of a battery is three to five years. Knowing that, it may not seem important, but making a battery test a part of your car care routine (alongside oil changes) is essential maintenance. It’s good to know the quality of the battery powering your Explorer because low voltage can cause the engine to overheat, damaging the internal components and leading to costly repairs.

It’s also good to recognize the signs of a weak battery to reduce the risk of damage. Those signs include:

  • Trouble starting the ignition/turning the engine over.
  • If the engine does start, it doesn’t hold a charge.
  • Dim or flickering headlights and taillights.
  • Dim cabin lighting and interior lights.
  • Electrical problems.
  • Strange odors.

Maintain Your Battery’s Performance

Unlike other areas of your Explorer, the battery doesn’t receive any routine maintenance or service. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can keep it performing optimally. These maintenance tips won’t extend its lifespan, but they will reduce your chances of facing a dead battery. These tips include:

  • Turning off lights and electronics when exiting your Explorer.
  • Securing the battery in place to prevent excessive movement or vibration.
  • Cleaning away any corrosion build-up that occurs around the battery’s cables.

Corrosion naturally occurs when the battery’s acid mixes with the air. To clean it away, use baking soda and water to neutralize the acid and then scrub it away with a brush.

Replacing Your Ford Explorer Battery Kingsport, TN

However, in the event that the battery dies, it’s good to know the reason for it. If it died from a simple mistake like forgetting to turn the headlights off, jumpstarting the battery is an easy solution. To jumpstart the battery:

  • Connect a pair of jumper cables to the dead battery and the battery in a working vehicle.
  • Start the working vehicle and let the engine run for about five minutes.
  • Start the engine of the vehicle with the dead battery.

Once your Ford Explorer is running, drive it around for about fifteen minutes. The alternator (which is the reason the battery is able to provide electricity to the rest of the vehicle) will charge the battery, which should hold and continue running as normal. However, if it doesn’t hold a charge, then the alternator may be the problem.

But if the reason the Ford Explorer battery Kingsport, TN died is that it’s old or in poor condition, then it’s time for a replacement, and the service department at your local Ford dealership is there to help.

Before purchasing a new battery, there are a few key aspects you’ll want to consider. These include the battery’s

Group Size

The battery’s group size is its physical dimensions (length x width x height). While most vehicles will allow for more than one group size, it’s still important to select the correct one that fits in your Ford Explorer. The wrong size could cause a spark or fire if the battery’s posts come into contact with any metal surfaces.

Cold Cranking Amps

The battery’s cold cranking amps (CCA) are an important performance indicator that will tell you how well the battery will supply sufficient power in zero-degree temperatures for thirty seconds. The higher the number, the better the performance will be.

Reserve Capacity

The battery’s reserve capacity (RC) is another important performance indicator. It tells you the length of time the battery will supply power before it drops to the minimum voltage level. Like cold cranking amps, the higher the number, the better the performance. The reserve capacity is important to note if you use your Explorer to run electrical equipment when it’s turned off.

Battery Date Code

The date code indicates when the battery was manufactured. The longer a battery sits, the less efficient it will be. So, much like anything else, the newer the battery, the better it will perform.

The group size, cold cranking amps, and reserve capacity should all be noted in your owner’s manual. However, if you bring your Explorer in for battery service at the Ford dealership, the service advisor will be able to help you select the correct battery for it. Along with that, you can always be assured you’re getting the highest quality product with Ford parts and accessories.
