Your car’s battery is one of its most important components. It provides the power necessary to get your engine going and ensures that your vehicle’s electrical systems can run. In other words, without a battery that’s working well, your Wrangler or Challenger won’t get very far. Maintaining your battery and getting it replaced at the right time are key car maintenance tasks. At our Jeep service center, we can provide you with assistance for all your battery service needs.
All batteries wear out over time and require replacing. While it’s difficult to give an exact timetable, batteries generally need changing after three to five years. Factors such as extreme temperatures and your driving habits can impact the length of your battery’s life. For instance, cold climates make batteries work harder to produce energy, which can result in them wearing out sooner. If you use your vehicle predominantly for short trips, your battery may wear out sooner than it would in a vehicle that regularly takes long trips because it has less chance to fully charge.
In addition to replacing your battery when it’s time to do so, we can perform other battery-related services. These can include cleaning your battery’s connections and performing battery tests. These maintenance services can help you get the most out of your battery and ensure that you replace it in good time before it dies completely. Before you stop by to take advantage of our battery services, don’t forget to take a look at our service specials page to find out if we’re currently running any incentives on our battery maintenance services.
As we’ve already noted, batteries have an approximate working life of three to five years. As a result, you can have a good idea of when you should replace your battery by keeping a note of its age. If your battery is over three years of age, we’d advise you to have it tested to make sure that it’s still in good condition. If you’re already spotting problems with your battery at this stage, it’s probably best to get it changed.
One of the common problems you should look out for is delays in starting your vehicle. If you have to wait a few seconds after turning the key or pressing the start button for your engine to get going, you could be dealing with a weak battery. The delay may be due to your battery struggling to produce enough power to start your engine.
Another indication that your battery is in decline is if your electric windows move more slowly than usual. You may also notice that your headlights get dimmer when your vehicle is idling and brighten up when you drive off. Both of these signs suggest that your battery lacks the power required to adequately support your car’s electrical systems. By responding to these warnings and stopping by our dealership to get a new battery, you can avoid finding yourself in a situation where your battery dies and you need to jump-start your car.
There are many types of car batteries to choose from, which is why it’s important to make sure that the one you buy is suitable for your vehicle. You’ll find a recommendation for the types of battery you can use in your owner’s manual. Alternatively, if you can’t locate your manual, one of our Jeep or Dodge experts can advise you on the best battery for your truck, sedan, or SUV.
One of the most important factors to consider is the battery’s cold cranking amps (CCA). This is a measure of how much power the battery can generate. The battery you choose must have a CCA rating that’s at least equivalent to the minimum CCA required by your vehicle. Otherwise, the battery won’t produce enough power.
Another factor to consider is the battery’s group size. The group size tells you the width, height, and length of the battery you’re planning to purchase. Most vehicles can accept several group sizes, so you probably won’t be limited to one option. However, choosing an incorrect group size could mean that you end up with a battery that won’t fit.
When you’re ready to order your battery, you can rely on our parts center. With our online order form, you can specify the battery you require and we’ll order it for you. We may even have one in stock, as we regularly supply the best batteries for Chrysler and Dodge sedans, Jeeps, and Ram Trucks.
Our Dayton service center and parts department have the equipment and know-how to handle battery replacements. We can supply a range of top-quality battery types and professionally install them so you can get back on the road.
While your vehicle is in our service center having its battery changed, we can also provide other critical maintenance services. You can get your oil changed, tires rotated, and fluids topped up so that your Ram truck or Jeep crossover continues to perform to its best on the road, at the job site, or on your favorite trail.
You can also request a multi-point inspection from one of our technicians. These inspections are very helpful for identifying potential problems before they get serious, which can allow us to intervene and carry out preventative maintenance. For instance, the inspection may reveal that your brake pads are almost worn through, allowing you to get a new set before further damage is caused to your discs or calipers.
We hope we’ve clearly explained how important it is to replace your battery on time and how we can help you do just that.
