Chevrolet Auto Battery Replacement

Your Chevrolet’s vehicle battery provides the engine with the necessary power to start. It also powers your lights, heater, air conditioner, music system, and more. In short, without the battery, your engine would just be a thousand dollar paperweight.

Signs your Chevrolet Battery is Dying

There are several reasons why it may be time to get your battery inspected:

The Battery is Old

A car battery typically lasts four to five years. Battery lifespan can fluctuate based upon several factors including driving style, mileage, and climate. If your battery has reached the 4-year mark, it’s time to have it inspected at our service center. If you are unsure how old the battery is, look at the side of the battery case to find the manufacture date.

The Battery Case is Swollen

If you find that the sides of your battery case have expanded or look swollen, then it is possible your battery was exposed to extreme heat or cold temperatures. This swelling can cause an electrically dead battery which can not be recovered, even if you try to jump-start it.
You may also want to bring your Chevrolet battery in for inspection for several other reasons, including:

  • If you recently had to jump-start your battery.
  • Your dashboard warning light is illuminated.
  • The ignition clicks without the engine starting.
  • There are problems with electrical components.
  • Battery terminals are loose.
  • Headlights are dim.
  • Internal lights are dim.

How to Choose the Right Replacement Battery

You want a battery that has the best combination of longevity, power, and price. First, your Chevrolet requires a battery with a specific size. It must also have the correct reserve capacity. You will be able to find both of these specs within your owner’s manual.

Do not wait until your battery dies. The last thing you want is to be stranded during your morning commute or family trip. Have your battery inspected by trained technicians at Coastal Chevrolet of Pawley’s Island, SC.
