What is the Purpose of a Car Battery?

Car batteries are essential to the running health of your vehicle. The car battery is where the power resides that creates the initial voltage that initiates the spark in your combustion chamber. The twelve volts of power supplied by the battery enters the ignition coil where the power is multiplied to the specifics required for efficient firing.

A car with a bad battery may as well have no battery at all. Without the specified amount of originating voltage, the ignition coil will not receive enough power to generate the spark needed to bridge the gap between poles of the spark plug. That means there is not enough heat generated to ignite the fuel. The importance of a well-maintained battery cannot be exaggerated.

To have your battery inspected and tested for voltage levels, bring your vehicle to our service center here at Zeigler Ford of Elkhart in Elkhart, IN.
