One of the most common causes of a breakdown, especially during the winter months, is a faulty of flat battery.
There a few reasons why your battery might fail. Sometimes, it might be that there is a poor connection due to corrosion building up throughout the year. Although battery terminals are checked and cleaned during every MOT, corrosive deposits can quickly collect in the interim. Arguably the most common reason for batteries losing charge is when they are left to stand for long periods of time, or if they are only used for very short "stop-start" journeys. It's always a good idea to give your vehicle a good run every week or so, not juts to preserve your battery but for a variety of other mechanical reasons.
It's also possible that there may be a problem with battery's charging system, or a fault with the battery itself, which can be a major long term problem. However, it might just be that you've left a light on somewhere! After all, human error is often the most likely source of a problem!
