Have you ever accidentally left on the lights of your vehicle? We’ve all been there, and we’ve all had that "Please start!" moment. Your vehicle's battery primarily helps to start the engine, but it also stores energy generated by the alternator and runs the secondary electrical systems such as your lights, radio, power seats, power windows, and additional electrical components in your vehicle. Your battery is also essential if you like to stream music or charge your phone while driving. To help you take care of your battery, we advise the following:

  • Clean and remove corrosion and add anti-corrosive protection
  • Tighten hold-down clamps and terminals that may be loose
  • Test battery condition
  • Check the alternator belt tension and wear

The two most common reasons for a dead or low car battery are:

  • Leaving on the lights of your vehicle
  • Not maintaining your battery properly

Remember, batteries are rechargeable. It is always a good idea to carry jumper cables in your vehicle in case of emergencies. You never know when you may need to jump start your vehicle, or even help out another driver in need.

Once your battery has reached its limit, recycle it! Recycling batteries can reduce the resources required for manufacturing new batteries. When you recycle your battery, you can also divert toxic lead from landfills or improper disposal.

Come in today for all of your battery care needs. We can help you choose the right battery for your vehicle and lifestyle and our staff can safely and professionally install it to get you back on the road!
