It is common knowledge that all vehicles require at least one car battery to support its electrical systems. If you neglect it, you will not have a dependable vehicle. It is also common knowledge that if you keep your vehicle long enough, at some point in time you will need a car battery replacement.
Basic Health – In order to prevent a premature car battery replacement, check terminals and cables. Loose or dirty cables are a common “no start” condition. Cable ends and terminals should be cleaned with a wire brush and light sand paper periodically to remove any corrosion build up. Spray coatings for terminals are helpful in reducing the formation of corrosion.
Replacement - If a car battery replacement is necessary, the new one should be the same size, have the same cable connections, and should be the same electrical capacity as the original. Your mechanic can help you identify and install the proper car battery for your vehicle.
