Malfunctions Involving Automotive Batteries
A malfunction that causes a vehicle’s battery to stop sending a full charge through the electrical system can be very dangerous. Many automobiles require the full power of the electrical system to operate safely. Safety and control features may not work without a properly working battery. However, some defects in the manufacturing process can leave batteries prone to failure.

Major Kinds of Battery Failures
The electrical system in any motor vehicle is relatively complicated. Batteries operate by creating charges through plates, and eventually send this charge through the terminals of the battery. From there, wiring throughout the car sends this charge to a wide variety of systems. A single failure at any point can knock out a crucial system. However, a failure in the battery itself can shut down the entire vehicle’s electrical system. The following defects may affect batteries in this way:
- Insufficient electrolyte levels
- Damage to the battery from corrosion
- Malfunctions with terminals
- Positive and negative plate defects
A person can be seriously injured because of a collision caused by a lack of battery power.
If you or someone you love has been injured because of a battery failure, you may be entitled to pursue legal compensation. To discuss your options, contact the Racine auto defect attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
