You’ve probably noticed a bunch of warning lights on your dash when you start your engine. They flash on to test the circuits and then go off if everything’s okay. One of the warning lights looks like a car battery. Its job is to tell you if your battery is not charging properly. Now, you know that your battery stores electricity, enough to start your engine and get you moving, but that’s about it. You can only get a few miles on battery power alone.

Are you considering an update of your German vehicle, or perhaps you’re considering getting into your first one?
