Don't Let a Dead Car Ruin Your Day

If your car has difficulty starting or is in need of frequent jumps, it’s probably time to have the qualified auto technicians at Quail Corners Auto Care replace your battery or service the related components like the starter or alternator. A dead battery can leave you stranded and in need of an expensive tow. If you think something is wrong with your battery, starter, or alternator, bring your vehicle in and let our expert mechanics take a look and replace the necessary parts before you run into major trouble. We will test your car battery first to determine the problem, replace it with a new one or recommend other repairs, and improve your vehicle’s performance in no time.


Battery

On average, your car battery should last between three and six years before it will need to be replaced. With the way most batteries are designed today, it’s highly likely that there won’t be any warning before your battery dies. During a routine maintenance service, like an oil change, an auto technician at Quail Corners Auto Care can run a test on your battery to make sure it’s working properly. It’s a good idea to check what month and year your battery was made--you can find this stamped on the battery--so you have a general idea of when it will need to be replaced. It’s also a good idea to make sure your battery is charged before extreme weather hits, as they can fail more easily in extreme cold or heat.


Signs that your vehicle requires battery repair or replacement:

  • Strange Smell
  • Issues with electrical components
  • Slow engine crank
  • Battery acid leaking
  • Corrosion buildup

Starter

A bad starter can also prevent your vehicle from starting up right away. The job of a starter is to convert electricity into mechanical energy that helps start the operations of your vehicle. If you’re certain your battery is charged and that your alternator is in good condition, then it’s most likely an issue with your starter. The expert auto technicians at Quail Corners Auto Care can easily replace your starter and get you back on the road.


Charging

Charging your battery is a great, cost-effective option to extend the lifetime of your battery. You can do this at any time, but as mentioned above, it’s a good idea to have your battery charged when you know there will be extreme weather conditions.


Alternator

A dead battery can also be a sign that your alternator isn’t working properly. The alternator is the part of your engine that produces electricity to charge the battery and powers the electronics while the engine is running. If your alternator malfunctions, your battery can drain and won’t have enough charge to start your vehicle.


Signs that your alternator is in need of repair or replacement:

  • Alternator indicator light is on
  • Low or flickering headlights
  • Loss of power in other electronic devices in your vehicle
  • Strange noises
  • Car stalls or has trouble starting
  • Battery dies
