Most drivers wait for their battery to die before replacing it, but it’s a huge inconvenience to be left stranded when you least expect it. Instead of leaving your vehicle’s performance to chance, follow these battery care tips from our service experts at Skaha Ford in BC.
Know its age
Most vehicle batteries have a life expectancy of three to five years. Unfortunately, as they age, they become weaker over time and more unreliable. Consider replacing your battery before it fails.
Recognize warning signs
If your headlights dim when you turn on your Ford or the engine cranks when you activate the ignition, that could mean your battery is due for a replacement. Other signs like corroded connections and a smell of rotten eggs can be symptoms of battery failure.
Get it tested
Battery tests are an effective way to assess performance and reliability. When you have your battery tested at our Service Department, our Ford factory-trained Technicians will also perform a full inspection to look for signs of corrosion or faulty connections and recommend a suitable replacement if required.
