Importance of Battery Inspections & Replacements

Batteries will naturally begin to lose their charge over time, causing the overall output and performance standards to decline. Large fluctuations in temperature can also cause batteries to become more susceptible to draining and deterioration. Routine battery inspections help maintain the soundness and stability of your battery’s power. By checking twice a year during your oil change, you can help prevent further damage and ensure a clean battery area.

There are numerous reasons why a vehicle won't start. If it's related to the battery, the starter will generally not crank the engine. This is the telltale "click, click, click" you hear when you turn the key or push the start button that lasts for about 10 seconds. The battery voltage and charging information in the Driver Information Center (DIC) can also make you aware if the alternator is not charging the battery properly, or if a loose battery or starter cable is causing a problem.

In most instances, driving will recharge the battery fully in 1-2 hours, unless there is an issue with the vehicle. If your vehicle does not restart after driving it, have it towed to your nearest Certified Service experts to have a diagnosis performed.

The best thing that you can do is have your Certified Service technician perform a test on your battery when you get your oil changed. This helps monitor the status of the battery and helps prevent you from being in a situation where your vehicle won't start.
