When to Replace Your Car Battery

How frequently a car battery gets replaced depends on different factors, which include climate, location, and personal driving habits. There are a variety of warning signs to watch out for, and it can mean it’s time for a new battery. These signs include:

  • A swelling or bloated battery case
  • Fluid leaking from the battery
  • Low fluid levels in the battery
  • Slow cranking or sluggish start
  • The “Check Battery” light comes on

Battery Maintenance

Corrosion is another reason for your battery issues, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for build-up. When build-up starts happening, it’s time to clean the battery. Cleaning your Acura’s battery is not hard, and you can do it at home. Below are the steps to cleaning your vehicle’s battery:

  • Open the hood and locate the battery
  • Carefully remove the cables.
  • Clean the cable with baking soda, water, and a wire brush
  • Re-connect the cables in the correct order.
  • Make sure the cover is put back

It’s recommended to wear gloves and glasses for safety. If you’re not comfortable with cleaning your vehicle’s battery, our service department has you covered! Give us a call for an appointment, and our team will make sure your battery is free or any build-up.
