Everything You Need to Know About Your Vehicle’s Battery

You aren’t going anywhere if your car’s battery is not functioning. Your battery powers most components of your vehicle, from the starter to the windshield wipers to the engine. We know how frustrating it can be to be stranded with a malfunctioning battery, which is why we do everything we can to keep your battery in the best shape when you come in for service at the Lone Star Mitsubishi service center in San Antonio.

When should I have my battery inspected?

You might find that you have more issues with your battery in extreme weather, so having your battery inspected before the hot summer months is a must. Batteries are only designed to last three to five years, so if your vehicle’s battery is older than that or falls within that range, be sure to have the expert technicians at Lone Star Mitsubishi take a look at it. Ideally though, you should have your battery tested every time you bring your car in for service to be on the safe side.

What are the signs that your battery needs to be replaced?

Of course, if you are having to jump start your vehicle often, you need to have a battery replacement. Other signs that your battery has reached the end of its life include low battery fluid level, bloating of the battery case, and a rotten egg smell. If you notice electrical components not working properly in your car, that’s another bad sign.
