Have You Had Your Battery Checked Lately?

Maintenance

Your vehicle’s battery has a lot to do! It provides electrical power to start the engine. It sends power to operate all of the cabin accessories, such as the stereo, lighting, and the blower motor for the A/C and defroster. It powers the instrument panel so we can see what our vehicle is doing. And as vehicles get more complex, even more systems are added, such as navigation, engine, and transmission management, Wi-Fi, lane departure, self-driving modes and much more.

Extremes in temperature are very hard on a battery, and will reduce its lifetime. Summer can be tough, as many accessories (like A/C) are typically running at all times. There was a time when a car battery might last as long as 5 years, but with today’s demands and constant charge-discharge cycles most batteries are tired and ready for replacement in 2 to 3 years. It’s wise to have your battery checked at each oil change, so you know if it is up to the job requirements. Our technician knows what to do, and what to look for. You need to be able to turn that key and be able to count on your battery to be up to the task and deliver you where you need to go.
