Keep Your Car Running Strong with Routine Battery Checks
When is the last time you checked your car's battery? Chgances are it has been quite some time. Battery problems can often be tricky to diagnose. If your car has been starting sluggishly as of late, or if its electronics have been mysteriously dimming, it might be time for a battery replacement. Car batteries have a life of about three to five years, but if you have been noticing any of the aforementioned symptoms before this period of time has passed, it's probably time to consider a replacement.
Though you can always just wait for symptoms to show up before having it tested, it is always best to have the battery periodically tested to catch any issues early on. Our test will check the entire starting and charging system, including the starter, battery and alternator. Additionally, it will put this system under a load, so our technicians can get a look at the entire picture before making a recommendation.
Batteries also require periodic maintenance, as oxidation can appear on the battery terminals and the battery cable ends, making it hard for your battery to send its charge to the rest of the system. We can clean this oxidation and apply a coat of protectant that will help prevent this from occurring again. This can not only fix minor starting issues, but it can also prolong the life of your battery.
