Don't Let Your Battery be a Drain

As a Ford owner, you know how important your car battery is to the operation of your vehicle. To keep your battery running at its best, you need to make sure it is not being drained by devices that are not operating properly. Below are some tips on devices that may be draining your car battery:

  • Car Alarm - If your car alarm is not properly installed, it can drain your car battery quickly. Sometimes the alarm may be installed using non-standard splicing techniques, causing a strain on the car battery.
  • Glovebox Light - Car owners often forget about the light in the glovebox; if this light is not turning off, it can drain your car battery.
  • Proximity Keys - Proximity keys are convenient, but can cause a drain on your car battery. Proximity keys operate by continuously scanning for frequency, so if your car is in a parking lot with other cars utilizing proximity keys, it will be continuously scanning for the proper signal and inadvertently draining the battery.
