Battery Testing & Information

What you need to know about your battery and why it should be tested:

The battery is what powers the electrical components in your vehicle by providing a jolt of electricity and stabilizing the voltage. As time goes on, batteries will begin to wear and tear and about 70% of all batteries fail within 4 years.

Batteries tend to last longer when driven daily, allowing them to fully charge each time during longer trips. Little stops to the gas station, to the bank, etc. prevents the battery from charging and takes a toll on the electrical components. As the colder weather begins, added stress is put on your battery and increases the risk of failure. Here at Castle Honda, we want to make sure you arrive to your destination without any hassle which is why we're offering
free battery testing. Let us help you determine how much battery life is left as well as an estimate as to what temperature your battery may fail at.

Simply having your battery tested can prevent problems for yourself in the future but there are ways to prevent your vehicle's battery from failing completely; be aware of some major symptoms:

1. Slow engine start:
When the battery is failing, it loses its capacity and holds less charge. When you start your vehicle and it starts slower than normal, this is a major indication that your battery may be failing.

2. A smell of rotten eggs:
If you notice an unsettling smell around your battery, this could mean your battery is leaking which will result in corrosion and eventually prevent your battery from starting.

3. Your battery looks bloated or swollen:
If your battery looks bigger than normal, it could be because of excessive heat which eventually could make your battery go bad.

Avoid any problems with your battery and visit us today for your
free battery testing. Drive with a peace of mind and enjoy wherever the road may take you.
