59 Auto Repair - When should my battery be replaced? - Image 1

A battery typically has a life span of 5 to 6 years. Over time, the battery's ability to hold a charge will lessen, causing the vehicle to not start. The technician will check the cold cranking amperage of the battery as well as the reserve capacity to determine the battery's performance. When a battery's cold cranking amps fall below optimal level, the battery should be replaced. Extreme weather, such as the cold in winter, puts extra strain on the electrical system of your vehicle to start.

This means that it takes more power from the battery to start your vehicle when the weather is poor. We always recommend checking your battery before winter for this reason. Checking the battery is part of our standard maintenance inspection for every vehicle that we service. Call today to schedule an appointment to have your battery checked!
