What Causes A Battery To Die Quickly

  4. Park In Shade
  5. Bring Your BMW For A Battery Inspection

Is It The Battery Or The Alternator?

The alternator regulates the electric current your battery gets during recharging while you drive. If your vehicle starts but stalls during the ride, you have problems with dimming lights or audio system outputs, it’s possible your battery is not getting charged due to a failing alternator.
