How Do I Know That My Battery is Starting to Fail?

  • Your headlights appear dim when you first start the vehicle, but get brighter as you hit the accelerator.
  • The Battery sputters or turns over slowly, which can also be caused by improper wiring between the alternator and battery, which should be checked out by a professional.

How Can I Keep My Battery Charged and Performing at the Highest Level?

There are a few battery maintenance tips that you can either do it at home if you have the right tools, or our technicians can do it for you in our service center in a matter of minutes. The first step towards maintaining your battery is cleaning the corrosion off the terminals. It's important that you wear eye protection and gloves for this job, as you'll be cleaning the terminals and battery cables with a post cleaner or wired brush, which is liable to kick some corrosion up. You may also want to check the battery cells and add water if necessary. If you have a battery tester handy, you can check the level of charge in your battery, or we can do it for you in no time.
