Hagerstown Honda takes pride in serving customers in Falling Waters, WV. Car batteries are the power that fuels the electrical system in any vehicle. When the battery does not perform as it should, neither will your vehicle. At Hagerstown Honda, we do a thorough inspection of your battery and all the components that depend on the power it delivers. We recommend battery inspections and testing at least twice a year. Most dealerships offer free battery testing, and you can tell within minutes if you need a new battery. Battery maintenance and preventative service is an important part of keeping your vehicle’s electrical system up-to-date and running the right way.
When we perform a battery inspection, we look at the connectors, the battery’s age, and whether the battery needs to be replaced. A fully charged battery should put out one voltage or higher. However, when the engine is running, the output should be between 13.7 – 14.7 volts. If your battery is not putting out these voltages, you might need a new battery. There are some tests we perform to make sure it is the battery and not another electrical part. Oftentimes, the charging systems connected to the battery might not be firing and could drain the battery’s power. If you need a new battery, we have dependable car batteries for sale near Falling Waters.
Since other electrical parts like an alternator or starter can mimic a weak battery, you can perform a simple test, before scheduling an inspection and testing. You can start by checking if your headlights are dim. If they are dim, then this could indicate that the battery is not producing enough current. When you bring your vehicle in for inspection, we go a step further by conducting several other tests. We can check the battery cables, the voltage flow, and the fluid level if applicable. Sometimes, the battery is not the problem, but you will not know for sure until you bring your vehicle in for an inspection.
Whether you need a replacement depends on the condition of your battery. If you do need a battery replacement, we will give you the best.
