Lithia Chrysler Jeep of Reno has New Car Batteries
Have you ever come back to your car to realize (to your horror) that you left your lights on? Do you get into your car full of dread and turn your key tentatively to find that your engine just clicks and doesn't turn on? Most of the time you can get your car up and running with a jumpstart but sometimes that battery is dead for good.
There are a few different ways you can tell if your battery is going to die soon. The most obvious way is age. Batteries typically live about five years before requiring replacement. You can also tell by looking at the battery and terminals for any corrosion or stains. This means that the battery may be leaking. Finally if your car coughs a couple times before turning on that can also mean that your battery is on the way out.
If you are uncertain if your battery is on the way out, it is best to bring it by for a test. Our qualified technicians will test the entire starting and charging system for any defects and let you know the results. If your battery is in need of replacement, rest assured that we have top-quality parts in stock to get you back on the road.
We also offer battery services that can help inject life back into your aging battery. Over time, corrosion can interfere with the flow of power from the battery to your vehicle's electronics. Our cleaning service will remove this corrosion and add a protective coating to prevent this issue in the future.
If you're worried about your battery then stop by Lithia Chrysler Jeep of Reno. Our technicians will test your battery to see if it needs replacing. If you need further assistance or just have a question, feel free to swing by our service center or give us a call.
