Battery Defect Problems
A car with a malfunctioning battery can experience a dangerous loss of electrical power. Electrical systems help a driver to maintain control of his or her vehicle in dangerous situations. A battery failure can deny a driver the benefit of computer assistance with anti-lock brakes, power steering, and power braking. A defect involving automotive batteries can prove severely problematic.

Automotive batteries provide power to a vehicle by using a particular kind of acid which acts upon the metal inside the battery. The chemical reaction from the metal and acid working together produces a charge that is transferred through the terminals to the rest of the vehicle. This provides power to each of the vehicle’s systems that require electrical power or computer assistance. The following defects can create problems with this system:
- Problems separating charges in battery plates
- Acid sulfation
- Low electrolyte content
- A terminal malfunction
- Excessive corrosion
A person operating a motor vehicle when the battery fails can essentially lose power to most of their major systems. These failures can create dangerous scenarios in which a driver must attempt to exit the road and come to a stop in a vehicle that handles in a completely unfamiliar manner.
