Reliable Car Battery Replacement Services

Although some batteries can last up to 5-6 years with proper maintenance, most drivers need a car battery replacement every 3 years or so. Batteries are one of the most finicky parts in any vehicle, so it doesn’t take much for them to lose a charge or fail completely. However, there are a number of reasons why a battery might lose its charge, including a faulty alternator, which is why we recommend getting a battery test before you purchase a new one. 

If you notice any of the following signs, schedule a battery test at one of our St Paul MN locations:

  • The charging system warning light or check engine light is on
  • Your engine turns over slowly 
  • Dim headlights 
  • Ignition clicks
  • Issues with the radio, dashboard warning lights, power windows, or other electrical system components
  • Visible corrosion on the battery terminals
  • A rotten egg or sulfur smell near the battery
  • A bulging battery case
  • Your battery is between 3-5 years old
  • You’ve recently been in a car accident (which can loosen the cables or damage the battery case)

Keep in mind that car batteries are also very sensitive to cold temperatures. At 32 degrees Fahrenheit, a battery will be up to 35% weaker than normal. If your battery is exposed to low temperatures for an extended period of time, it can cause it to fail prematurely. 

Don’t Wait for a Dead Battery–Schedule a Battery Check Today

Since the battery is directly responsible for starting your car, it’s best to replace it before it fails. Being proactive with your car battery replacement will help prevent you from getting stranded and ensure all your vehicle’s electrical components work properly. Regular maintenance will also help extend the life of your battery.
