What You Need to Know About Your Battery

Without a functioning car battery, you will not be able to get from one place to the next. If your car battery is more than 4 years old or if it is slow to start, you may want to consider getting it tested to make sure that there are no other problems with it. When you take your car on an extended drive, you get a greater charge to your battery. However, short and repeated trips can result in your battery having an electro-chemical imbalance so it does not last as long. Additionally, neglecting your battery can result in you being stranded with no battery power. This can happen in the hottest of summers as well as the coldest of winters.

If you are having a hard time getting your car to turn on, then you definitely need to get your battery checked out. After just a few years, your car battery will begin to lose its ability to quickly recharge or recharge at all. At this point, you should have your car battery replaced before you end up stranded due to a dead battery. There are some quick and simple tests that we can run to determine how well your battery is currently holding a charge and if your battery is currently having any other issues. If your battery is more than 4 years old, be sure to reach out to us to have it tested here at Toyota Knoxville.
