Battery Test and Replacement in Huntington, NY
There are a few vital components of every vehicle, and one of the most important is your car’s battery. That is why we at Kia of Huntington recommend getting your battery inspected and switched out every few years to ensure that your car is running at its top functionality. If you have any questions about this procedure, feel free to contact us. Or, bring your car into the shop if you need a new battery today!
You might be wondering how often you need to inspect your car's system. We recommend following a timespan of about three to five years. At three years old, your battery will start to wear down, so it is a good idea to drive in then for a system test. By the five year mark, it might be smart to bring it again to see if it needs replacement. Keep in mind, this timeline can alter a little based on a few factors, such as the climate you drive in, your specific driving style, and even the model of your vehicle. For specific details on your car, make sure to read your owner’s manual. Or, utilize our handy Ask An Advisor tool under the Service tab of our website to ask a question directly to one of our service experts.
Apart from the general timeline, there are also a few warning signs that could pop up that are indicative of an issue with your battery. First and foremost, if your car seizes up on the roadway and you find yourself needing a jump start from another vehicle to get it going again, that is a surefire sign that your system has worn down and possibly needs a replacement. Other, subtler signs include if your car takes longer than usual to turn on, or if you hear a clicking noise while attempting to start it up. Another thing to note is that your battery is connected to all of your vehicle’s electronics. Therefore, if you start noticing your display screens, headlights, or other technology start to malfunction, then it might be a good idea to visit our service bay for a quick checkup.
