Cadillac Battery Service Near Pawley’s Island, SC

When is it time for a new Battery?

If you’ve ever been stuck in a parking lot or on the side of the road due to a problem with your battery, then you need to pay attention to the health of your Cadillac battery. You can avoid such a situation again by paying attention to the following warning signs:

1 – Battery Leak

A leaking battery should be replaced immediately. An overheated battery may result in leakage from a cap on top. This fluid is made of a highly corrosive and toxic sulfuric acid solution. This is why you should allow a trained technician to replace a leaking battery.

2 – Swelling, Bloated Battery Case

Bloating or swelling of the battery case happens when the battery is overcharged. Heat and hydrogen gas is built up faster than the battery can dissipate, causing the outer casing to expand. If you find that your battery case is bloated, then you need to bring your vehicle to our service center at Coastal Cadillac of Pawley’s Island, SC.

3 – Slow Engine Crank

A weak or slow engine crank is a sign of a dying battery. If you do not get this checked out by a technician, then it is possible that your car will stop cranking completely. In some cases, slow engine cranks are due to a faulty alternator, but in most cases you will need to replace the battery.

4 – Old Age

The older a battery gets, the more at risk it is of dying. It is important to get your battery tested if it is 3 years or older to ensure that the battery still has sufficient cranking power and voltage.

5 – Low Battery Fluid

There is typically a portion of the casing that is translucent so that you can check your battery’s fluid level. You can also inspect the fluid level by removing the red and black caps (if they are not sealed). If the fluid level falls below the lead plates inside, it is important to have your battery tested. A drop in fluid levels is typically due to overcharging or overheating.

If you come across any of these warning signs, it is time to bring your vehicle to our service center at Coastal Cadillac of Pawley’s Island, SC. Our certified technicians will conduct a full inspection to determine the health of your batteries.
