Battery Services in Braintree, MA

Your vehicle's battery is one of the key parts of the vehicle. If the battery doesn't work, your car will cease to function. That means. it will not start, there will be no Radio/Pandora/Bluetooth, the A/C will not work, and so much more.


Battery life

Battery life cycles range from three to five years depending on the grade of battery. Even though your battery is still working perfectly, an old battery can affect your vehicle worse and worse. Also, battery life changes depending on your driving habits. Short trips (under 20 minutes) and long period of inactivity will shorten your battery's lifespan.


How do you I know if my battery is old?

There is typically a four or five digit code on the cover of your battery case. The first code is the key to knowing the battery's manufactured date; A for January, B for February and so on.


How will I know if I need to replace my battery?

1. Slow Engine Cranks
When your engine is turning on but it doesn't start or takes longer to start, this could mean your battery needs replacing.

2. No Lights
Your battery powers all the accessories and lights in your car, especially when the alternator is not running. If your vehicle's lights are dim, or non functioning this could be an indication of a battery issue.

3. Starts fine, but next time it doesn't
Even though you can start your engine, you will need to check your alternator, accessory lights, fuses, radio, alarm and all other equipment. In certain conditions, your vehicle may still start even with a battery issue. However, you may notice certain electronics not functioning properly.

4. A Swollen Battery Case
If your battery casing looks bigger than normal, it is a sign that a battery life is decreasing and it should be replaced ASAP. You don't want to risk a split and leak of battery acids. 

5. Smells stinky
If you smell rotten eggs (sulfur odor) around the battery, your battery may have a leak. 

6. Old age
Your battery is more than three years, you should start to expect your battery won't last to much longer.
