One of the recurring services your Hyundai will need is battery replacement. Most car batteries last about 4-5 years. Over time the battery will weaken until replacement will become a necessity. At Toole’s Garage in San Carlos we offer wide range of Hyundai services, and battery replacement is one we perform regularly.
Before we would replace a battery, though, we will test it to make sure it can still hold a charge. Sometimes what appears to be a dead battery is really some other problem – failing alternator, or a parasitic electrical drain. Before we recommend spending money on parts, we will make sure as to the root cause of the problem.
Fortunately car batteries exhibit a range of symptoms before they fail, so if you notice your Hyundai exhibiting any of the signs listed below, bring it to our San Carlos auto care facility for a battery checkup – last thing you want is to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a dead car battery.
Here are the symptoms that indicate high likelihood that your Hyundai’s battery is failing:
- Problems starting the engine
- Battery connectors or terminals are corroded
- Power windows roll up slowly
- Flickering or dimming interior lights
- Fluid leaking from the battery
Make an appointment for a battery test if your Hyundai is showing any of the signs listed above. We can combine it with an oil change to save you that additional trip.
