What’s Included with Battery Check & Replacement Services?

Checking your vehicle’s battery is more than just hooking it up to a machine and checking its charge. We also want to be sure that the components that hook up to and surround your battery are in good working order.

Some of the common tasks of our battery checks include:

  • Inspecting the battery, battery cables, and terminals
  • Cleaning the surface of the battery and the terminals
  • Performing an open circuit voltage and load test
  • Treating the battery terminals to prevent corrosion
  • Removing the battery cables and terminals
  • Cleaning any debris from the battery
  • Installing new battery cables and terminals, tightening them to factory specifications

Battery checks can be conducted alongside other routine maintenance, such as oil changes or tire rotations, or you can schedule a separate appointment to have your car’s battery checked and serviced.

Eventually, you will need to replace your vehicle battery in order to keep your car working properly.

When we replace a battery, we perform the following tasks:

  • Removing the old battery
  • Cleaning debris from the battery holder
  • Installing the new battery
  • Properly tightening cables and hold-down clamps to ensure the battery won’t move
  • Treating the battery terminals to prevent corrosion

How Often Should I Replace My Car Battery?

On average, most vehicle batteries will last from 4 to 6 years. However, there are some factors that can impact your battery’s lifespan, including the type of vehicle, weather conditions, and your driving habits.

The harder you make your car work, especially if you’re one of those people that forgets to turn your headlights off, the faster your car’s battery will drain.

By having your vehicle’s battery checked regularly, you can plan a battery replacement before your battery goes completely dead on you.
