Battery Replacement & Maintenance

There are always little tips and tricks to make things last longer, be better, and stay stronger. The battery in your vehicle is familiar with this concept, but some people may be unaware of measures that could ensure a healthier lifespan for your battery. For instance, regular maintenance checks are strongly-recommended to stay on top of potential problems, which can easily be taken care of for you at Doral Buick GMC in Miami.

Not driving your vehicle for an extended period of time and only driving in short spurts can negatively affect your battery. Lastly, overcharging and undercharging results in a shortened lifespan as well. Learn more, have your vehicle inspected by us, or come in for a replacement at Doral Buick GMC- we’ll take care of you the first time around.

Battery FAQ’s—

Slow Start – If it seems slower or takes longer for your vehicle to start-up.

Check-Engine Light – This may turn on when the battery is weak.

Random Warning Lights – If a “low coolant” warning light appears, even if the coolant is not low.

Low Fluid – A see-through area on the battery allows you to see the amount of fluid remaining; the lower it is, the closer the battery is to needing replaced.

Having an unreliable battery can be extremely frustrating. The first thing to check is whether you have any accessories or items plugged-in that may be draining the battery. If you have done this and that isn’t the case, then there are some other things you can examine. If the majority of the trips that you make are short, especially in cold weather, there may not be sufficient time for the amperage from the alternator to recharge after exerting power to start the car.

Of course, there is always the possibility that the battery is simply at the end of its usable life and needs to be replaced. If you’ve checked for the above concerns and that does not solve the issue, it is time for a trip to visit your friendly Doral Buick GMC technician who can diagnose and solve your battery issues.

First, be prepared with a couple things we highly recommend you keep on board:

  • You will need a set of jumper cables which can be found conveniently at the Doral Buick GMC service center. If you are in a last minute dilemma, auto parts stores or retail stores, such as Kmart or Sears also sell them.
  • The second thing you need is another vehicle, whether a family member, friend, or simply a Good Samaritan is willing to help.

Now, follow the steps below. Don’t worry, jump starting a car battery is an easier process than you may think.

  1. Both cars must be close enough together so the jumper cables will reach from one car to the other. Turn both cars off.
  1. After opening the hoods, locate the batteries and their terminals. On the battery there will be two terminals, a red one marked positive (+) and a black one marked negative (-).
    *Be sure not to connect the positive (red) part of the jumper cable to a negative (black) battery terminal, or vice versa.
  1. Find a metal area under the hood of the vehicle with the dead battery (you will use this later).
  1. Connect a positive (red) jumper cable to the positive (+) terminal of the dead battery.
  1. Connect the other positive (red) jumper cable to the positive (+) terminal of the good battery.

 

  1. Connect a negative (black) jumper cable to the negative (-) terminal of the good battery.
  1. Connect the other negative (black) jumper cable to the metal of the vehicle with the dead battery (as mentioned in step 3). You can use any metal surface as long as it is not too close to the battery. The side of the car should suffice in most cases.
  1. You’re done connecting! Start the car with the good battery.
  1. After a few minutes (approximately 2-5 min.), start the car with the dead battery.

If the car starts successfully:

  1. Remove the jumper cables, starting with the negative (black) clamps.

If the car does not start:

  1. Wait a few minutes and attempt to start the car with the dead battery again.

Everything you need to know about batteries—

The battery provides power to the electrical components in a vehicle. The lights, ignition, radio, and several other components depend on a car battery; without one that works, your vehicle will not be able to start-up.

The Process – Chemical reactions within the battery itself create the electrical energy necessary to power a car. The voltage produced travels to the ignition which allows the vehicle to turn on. Besides generating energy to start the car, the battery also stabilizes the voltage to keep the engine running.
