Why G&G Auto Tests Your Car Battery During Service
Here at G&G Auto Repair, we test your car battery every time you bring your vehicle in for service we test your car battery, and here’s why.
A car battery stores electricity. Electricity used to start the engine. It also runs the lights, computers, and accessories of any car or truck. The amount of energy that a battery is able to store gradually decreases over time. This causes the batteries electricity to deplete. Once depleted there no longer is enough electricity for the battery to start the engine.
Hotter temperatures require more power to start a car’s engine. Also, a drop in outside temperature can decrease the amount of power that the battery stores.
While the engine can appear to be starting with little to no problems. You may find yourself in one of these situations. Now there isn’t enough power in the battery to crank the engine over. This can leave you stuck. Your car won’t start. Checking the car battery during service can tell us if the battery is getting low on power. This will allow the battery to get replaced before you get stranded. and nobody wants the experience of being stuck with a dead battery and not being able to start your vehicle.
