What Drivers Need to Know About Their Car Battery
Batteries aren’t built to last forever. If your battery is more than three to five years old, you should have it inspected by the professionals at Walker Jones Nissan, especially if you’ve been driving in extreme temperatures. Here are a few things you should know about your car’s battery.
Changing a Battery is Best Left to the Experts
It used to be fairly simple to change a vehicle’s battery, but now batteries are part of a much more elaborate system since many of your vehicles features, such as air conditioning and seat warmers, are powered from your battery. On top of that, your battery might not be as easily accessible as it once was. To ensure everything is correct, it’s best to take your car to a service department like ours in Waycross where we have the right tools and knowledge to get the job done right.
Your Battery Health Can Be Tested
There’s no reason to be left stranded on the road before knowing your battery needs attention. A battery check can be part of your routine maintenance with Walker Jones Nissan. This is especially important if you’ve been driving in extreme temperatures. We’ll be able to let you know how likely your battery is to need replacing in the coming months so you won’t be stuck without a vehicle.
It’s Important to Choose the Right Battery
Not every battery works in every vehicle. Batteries vary in size and power. At Walker Jones Nissan, we will help you choose the best replacement battery for your vehicle so all of your electrical components get the right amount of power.
