At Applegate Chevrolet, we want your vehicle to continue running smoothly long after you drive off our lot. That’s why we offer a comprehensive list of battery services to fit your needs. Read on to learn more about your car battery and how you can protect it was Applegate Chevrolet.

What Does Your Car’s Battery Do?

Much like any other battery, your vehicle’s battery helps to supply the energy that moves you. But a vehicle battery is a bit more complicated, and thus requires more attention. When you start your engine, the battery provides the energy you need. When the engine isn’t running, the battery powers any accessories in the vehicle, such as your headlights. No matter how you look at it, your battery is important to your drive. Without it, you won’t be getting far.

What Can Cause a Battery To Fail?

There are many reasons that your battery could fail, stalling you in place. In general, batteries can last three to five years, although this can depend on a variety of factors that include driving habits or climate. For example, warmer climates can shorten the life of some batteries, while very cold temperatures can have a similar effect. Not driving your vehicle for long periods of time can limit a battery’s life. If any of your battery’s accessories become disconnected, this can cause the system to wear out as well.

What Happens When a Battery Fails?

If your battery fails, you’ll know it immediately. First, you may not be able to get your vehicle to start. You may turn your key like usual, but instead of the familiar sound of your engine, you hear an unsettling clicking noise for about 10 seconds. This happens because the starter isn’t able to crank the engine.

If you experience this issue, it might be for many reasons. If you left your lights on overnight, for example, you may have drained your battery. Your battery may also be faulty and in need of service.

If you can, try to get someone to jump your car using their fully charged battery. If your issue is simply a drained battery, this should get you back into driving, which should charge your battery in a matter of one to two hours. If your car won’t restart after the jump, though, it may be time to bring it in for service. Our skilled technicians will be happy to diagnose and fix your issue in no time.

Wondering if your battery is the problem? We’ll run a no-charge battery test to tell you if your battery requires a replacement, or if some other part of your battery system is off. If it’s the battery, we’ll be happy to walk you through the process of getting a new option.

If it’s another issue, we’ll examine your ride closely to see what’s going on. You can often find more information about your battery voltage and charging information in your ride’s Driver Information Center (DIC). We’ll look this over carefully and let you know if the problem is with an alternator, a loose battery, a malfunctioning starter cable, or any other issue that can mess with your system.
