A Few Things You Need to Know About Battery Replacement


Your battery is the ready source of electricity that your car uses for various operations. Routine battery service can prolong its life, but at some point, you will need to replace it. Here are a few things to know about battery replacement.

Before you decide to replace the battery, check its voltage. You may find that a simple recharge will get it up and running again. Also, check the water level in the cells. If it's low, top off with distilled water. It may give you more life out of your old battery.

If you do need to replace it, you have the choice of a traditional lead battery or upgrading to a lithium battery. Lithium runs at near 100% efficiency, but are much more expensive than the lead type. For battery service and replacement, bring your car into Santa Maria Mazda.
