Fiat Van Batteries
If your business relies on your Fiat van you probably make sure that it's well maintained and regularly serviced. Although most van drivers check the tyres and oil level, few drivers carry out regular checks on their battery. A van's battery can last anywhere from 2 to 7 years depending on the way the vehicle's driven and how well maintained it is, so your Fiat van might be in need of a replacement battery no matter how old it is.
You shouldn't put off buying a replacement battery until the morning your van won't start because that could affect your work. Although there are a few tell-tale signs that the battery's failing like sluggish starts in the cold and problems developing with the electrical systems , a battery can go at any time without warning.
Whether you drive a Fiat Ducato, Scudo, Doblo or Punto van there are things you can do to help prolong the life of your car battery. Switching off electrical systems like the radio before turning the ignition off helps preserve the battery life. Removing grime, grease and dust from the battery's connectors can also preserve your battery's life. If you're going to carry out the maintenance yourself you should take care to disconnect the terminals before brushing any debris away. Whether you cover a lot of distance with your van or work near your home, this will help keep the battery is good condition.
