Honda Battery Services in Anderson, IN

Don't wait until the last minute to get your car battery replaced. If you do, that could mean a battery with no charge, a car that won't start, and having to call in a favor for a jump start. Like any battery produced, your car battery overtime will lose charge and need to be replaced. The most common modern battery is the AGM (absorbed glass mat) style. This is a somewhat new version that offers better long-term performance for a slightly higher price tag. Either way, Tom Wood Honda of Anderson offers the best battery testing and inspection alongside new batteries for sale.

Bad Battery Symptoms/Causes

A bad battery is simply part and parcel of driving a car. No matter which car you have, you will need to get the battery replaced roughly every five years. Keep in mind this can vary drastically given many different variables. For instance, cars that drive on bumpy back roads typically suffer from loose battery connections. This occurs because the persistent bumps cause the wires connecting your battery to your engine to fray quicker, thus resulting in a less efficient transfer of power and more battery drain.

Additional Signs You Need a New Battery

In terms of symptoms to look out for, a bad battery may cause several issues. Perhaps the most telling is a rotten egg smell from the engine compartment and leaking into the cabin. Another straightforward indicator of more modern cars is the battery light coming on. This will indicate it's time to replace the battery. Another common issue is a car that is slow to crank. Your car takes longer than usual to turn over and for the engine to start.

Another cause could be simply the environment you drive in. For instance, if you're using a standard battery in a region with freezing winters and blistering summers (like the Midwest), then your battery won't last as long as a battery in more temperate environments. Even then, some batteries are designed with huge temperature variations in mind, thus allowing for a longer lifespan.

Getting a New Battery

Whenever you bring your car in for routine maintenance, you should also get a report indicating several metrics in your car. One of those is your battery charge. If you come to Tom Wood Honda of Anderson, our technicians will know when to recommend a battery replacement. Our factory-trained experts will get you a new battery and out the door before work with our early bird service.
