The performance of your engine, alternator, starter and electrical systems depend on the battery. High engine temperatures, vehicle vibrations, and extreme cold/hot climate conditions can damage and prematurely wear the internal components of the battery, thus affecting its life expectancy. If the battery fails, so does everything else.
The average life expectancy of a battery is about four years, but if you experience any of the following warning signs, you should get your battery checked as soon as possible:
- You have to jump start your vehicle
- Excessive corrosion around the battery terminals or cables
- Your engine is sluggish or turns over slowly, or not at all
- Bulging or deformity of the battery casing
- Your dashboard warning lights stay on
- Consistent electrical system problems
What We Do
At ServiceONE Automotive, our ASE Certified technician will perform a full analysis of your battery’s condition, including its state of charge and ability to hold charge. We will also perform an inspection and analysis of the vehicle’s starting and charging system, including the starter, the alternator and the voltage regulator. In addition, as part of the battery service, we will clean the battery’s connection and cable ends and apply a coating of corrosion protectant and a chemical inhibitor to prevent the reformation of any damaging deposits.
