Battery Service at Prestige Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM

Battery Service

The moment you put your keys in your vehicle’s ignition and turn, your car’s battery kickstarts the entire vehicle. Your car’s battery is the unsung hero of your vehicle as it is the part that is responsible for starting the engine and powering your vehicle. Your vehicle must undergo battery service regularly to keep it working properly!

What is Battery Service?

When you take your vehicle in for regular Jeep service, our technicians also examine and test your vehicle’s battery health. Battery service is done to make sure that your alternator is functioning properly and to help increase the lifespan of your vehicle’s battery. In fact, it is recommended that your battery be checked once a year or every 15,000 miles.

This service typically starts by examining how the battery looks. Our technicians check to make sure that your battery, the terminal connections, and the cables leading from it are looking healthy and secure. Should there be any oil or other gunk, the surface and terminals will be cleaned and treated to prevent any corrosion.

The final part of battery service is to test its voltage output and load capacity to make sure it can handle the rigor of powering your vehicle. If you’d like more of an explanation, make sure to check out our service video library for more information

What if my vehicle needs a Battery Replacement?

In the most extreme cases of battery disrepair, the entirety of the battery will need to be replaced. In this case, the old battery will have to be cleaned off and gently removed from your vehicle’s engine. The space where your battery is housed is then cleaned and a new genuine MOPAR battery is put in its place.

After putting a brand-new battery into your RAM truck or Dodge sedan, the new part is tested to make sure it is suitable to be driven with. The two terminals are cleaned off and treated with anti-corrosive treatments before the cables are securely tightened onto them. With your brand-new battery installed, your vehicle may just start up faster than it ever has before!

So don’t hesitate to reach out, your vehicle’s battery may depend on it! Stop by Prestige Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM to get your battery checked, and maybe get your whole vehicle inspected at the same time.
