Frequent Questions About Batteries & Electrical Repair
My vehicle won’t start. Why is that happening, and what do I do?
A: Some of the most common no-start issues are due to a faulty battery or starter. First, let’s rule out the battery– if you can get your vehicle jumpstarted, you can bring it down to us and we can run a battery/electrical test for no charge. If the battery needs to be replaced, we’ve got you covered – we carry the industry’s best batteries – Interstate® – right in our shop.
I was driving down the road, and all of my dash lights came on at once– then my car stalled out. What happened?
A: This issue can be commonly caused by a failed alternator – if you’re able to get your vehicle started again, we provide electrical system checks free of charge. If the vehicle won’t turn back on or stay running, give us a call and schedule some time for our technicians to diagnose & repair the issue.
How often should I replace my battery?
A: Most batteries should last 5-8 years, but we recommend testing your battery annually – something you can do with us at no charge. Another good place to check when it’s time to replace your battery is the label on the battery itself – most battery labels will contain a stamp/graphic with the manufacturer’s guaranteed service life expectancy.
How do I know if one of my electrical fuses has gone bad?
A: You can check a fuse yourself by locating the fuse box and finding a diagram in your owner’s manual, or online. From there, you can visually inspect a fuse by removing it. But be warned, the truth is that a blown fuse is most commonly a symptom of a deeper problem – not a diagnosis. Let us take a deeper dive, with our advanced electrical testing equipment, and figure out exactly why your fuse blew, and help you identify the underlying cause.
