The battery (or batteries) of your vehicle can be thought of as the “heart” in your vehicle, as nothing else will work if it doesn’t have a proper charge. It stores a large electrical charge that sends needed current to computers, switches, and other components on demand. Some of these draw lots of power, while others only pull a few milliamps here and there. Still, all of these rely on your battery to provide power when they need it, on demand, every time.
Usually mounted under the hood, a battery will undergo thousands of charging and recharging cycles over the life of you vehicle. Also, due to the environment of their location, they can be subject to heating and cooling cycles as well, diminishing their ability to receive and hold a recharge.
Diesel vehicles usually have TWO batteries, so you can see that keeping them in good working order is critical. That’s why diesel vehicles are usually on a maintenance schedule, so that regular inspections can catch small issues before they become big problems.
