Car Batteries


As you venture downtown to the grocery store, head to school for carpool duty, or gear up for your morning commute, you'll want to get behind the wheel of your car knowing that it will get you from point A to point B safely. If you haven't had your vehicle's battery inspected recently, your journey could prove to be unpredictable. Our used car service department serving Youngstown is here for all of your battery service needs.


 

How to Check the Condition of Your Car's Battery & What to Do if the Battery Fails:

  • Make sure that the connections are clean, tight, and corrosion-free.
  • If your car fails to start, get your jumper cables and find another driver to help
  • Make sure that both cars are in "park" or "neutral" with the ignitions shut off and the emergency brake is on
  • Remove the caps from each car's battery and connect the cables
  • Attach one of the red clips to the position terminal on your battery and attach the other red clip on the positive terminal on the other vehicle's battery
  • Attach one of the black clips to the negative terminal on the other car's battery and attach the other black clip to an unpainted, metal surface on your car-making sure that is isn't near the carburetor or the battery
  • Try to start your vehicle 

If you find you cannot jumpstart the battery or can do so with some difficulty, it may be time to pay a visit to our service department.


When To Replace Your Car Battery

Here are some telltale signs that you may need to replace your car battery:

  • When it's low: If you're noticing that it takes your car longer to crank when you turn the key, if the lights are dimming, or if your car simply won't start, it's a good indication that your battery is nearing the end of its lifespan. Any time your car needs to be jumpstarted, it's a good idea to have the system checked to ensure that everything's in good shape.
  • When it's old: As your battery ages, it will naturally lose some of its juice. Extreme hot and cold can speed this process up. When your battery does fail, it may not give any warning signs beforehand. That's why it's a good idea to replace your battery if it's over three years old, even if it seems to be working.

Can A Bad Battery Harm The Charging System or Starter?
You bet. If you have a weak ankle, you tend to overcompensate and put more weight-and stress-on the healthy ankle. Same concept with a weak battery. When you have a weak battery, your car ends up putting additional stress on healthy parts. The charging system, starter motor, or starter solenoid can be affected.
These parts can malfunction because they're drawing excessive voltage to compensate for the lack of battery power. Leave this problem unresolved, and you could wind up replacing expensive electrical parts-typically without warning.

Quick Tip: Our Electrical System Check makes sure all the necessary parts are drawing the correct voltage. We'll know right away if there are any weak parts that may need immediate replacement. Don't leave your car's power to chance, you may end up paying for it later.
