Battery Replacement & Service

Is your battery more than 3 years old? Has your vehicle been jump-started lately? Do the lights dim when the A/C or heat is on? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to replace your battery. Your battery provides the power necessary to crank your engine and is therefore a crucial aspect of vehicle maintenance. Unfortunately, it's inevitable that your battery will weaken and eventually need to be replaced. It's hard to say how long the average battery lasts, but generally it's somewhere between 3 and 5 years. Ask an advisor about our battery replacement service if you suspect you may need a new battery.

How do I know my battery needs replacing?

There are a few warning signs when it comes to a failing battery. The first, and most telling, is a slow or delayed engine crank. Your battery provides the power that allows your engine to start. If you notice that your engine cranks slower than usual, it could be a sign that your battery is low on power and should be tested as soon as possible. Once the battery is completely dead, the engine will not crank and you will often hear a clicking noise. Additional warning signs include issues with electrical components or a dashboard warning light shaped like a battery.

How long do batteries last?

The life span of your battery will depend on many factors, including where you live and your typical driving patterns. Extreme temperatures in your region, such as very hot summers or frigid winters, can cause additional wear on your battery. Additionally, frequently driving many short trips gives your battery less time to recharge. Over time, this will contribute to a shorter overall life expectancy for your battery. Generally, you can expect a battery in the southeast to last about 3 to 4 years. As you near 3 years, you should have your battery tested.
