Learn Ways to Help Extend the Life of Your Battery or Schedule a Battery Service

Low battery charge can be prevented, and a dead battery can be avoided altogether, if you follow the quick battery service tips offered by Kurt and his team at the Bob Maxey Service Center. And if you're really in a pinch, you can always schedule battery service appointment and we can fix your battery repair needs.

Art Miller, Service Advisor

Art recommends that you do the proper research before you buy a battery.

"You want to consider factors like cold cranking amps. If you live in a cold climate a higher CCA is a better option. It's always best to check your owners manual first or contact the Bob Maxey service team before you buy." 

Battery Service Tips

How can you tell if your car battery is in need of maintenance, service, or repair? Keep your eyes out for these red flags--but remember, always handle any battery with caution. You may need battery service if:

  • The cables or terminals are corroded or damaged
  • Drive belts are worn or broken
  • Battery looks deformed--bulging or odd
  • Cables or terminals, or the entire battery, feels loose or wiggly
  • Charging or electrical systems in your vehicle seem to be having a hard time functioning
  • You experience any trouble getting your engine to start
  • You're unsure of any of the above

When in doubt, get it checked out!

The experts at our Ford service center can help diagnose any issues you may be having with your battery, as well as test the charge and replace it with a high-quality Ford car battery if needed. Stop by Bob Maxey Ford or schedule an appointment to get the jump on battery care.
