Troubleshooting Car Battery Problems
When you start to have problems starting your car, it may be a car battery problem. Since your car battery is necessary to start your car, if your car does not start and the engine does not turn when you start the ignition, you likely have a dead battery. But, just because your battery is dead does not mean it needs to be replaced. There are a few things that could cause your battery to be drained of power, including leaving lights on for an extended period of time, alternator problems or electrical drain on the battery. Our experienced technicians provide expert car battery troubleshooting to help you properly diagnose what’s going on with your vehicle.
Buying a Car Battery
There are a few things to consider when you are in the process of buying a car battery:
Reserve Capacity: This refers to how long your battery will run if your alternator should fail. Buying a car battery with a long reserve capacity is important for emergency situations.
Group Size: Group size refers to not only the outer dimensions of the battery, but where the power terminals are placed on the battery. When buying a car battery, make sure you choose the group size recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer to avoid frustration.
Battery Type: There are two types of batteries, low-maintenance and maintenance-free. While maintenance-free batteries tend to have a longer operational life, they tend to be prone to failure. Low-maintenance batteries are ideal for our warmer climate.
Age: Always ask how long a battery has been sitting on the shelf before you purchase it. Avoid purchasing a car battery that is older than 6 months.
The experts at Quanz Advanced Auto Care can help you select the best battery for the specific year, make and model of your car!
