You might be wondering when you can be sure it’s time to take a look at your battery. As a general rule, it is good to inspect your battery every three to five years to determine whether it needs maintenance. In fact, most batteries will become less efficient once they hit the three-year mark, even if you have ideal driving habits. Your car battery is just like any other battery - it will wear out and eventually run out of juice, and that’s why it’s good to get it routinely inspected and replaced! When you consider factors such as the climate you live in, the terrain you’re traveling on, and the types of drives that you typically take, this timeline could adjust slightly. If you have any specific questions about this, feel free to contact us. And remember - always consult your owner’s manual or contact Sweeney Buick GMC for details about your specific vehicle!
There are several warning signs that can tell you that your GMC’s battery is in need of inspection. The most obvious sign is if your car seizes up on I-680 and you need a jump start to get going again. This indicates that your car battery has very low functionality and likely needs a replacement. Less severe signs include your car making a clicking noise while you’re attempting to start it up, and a generally slower startup time. When your battery is not at an optimal level, this may also lead to your vehicle’s other electronics not functioning properly, including the headlights, display screens, and more. Any of these symptoms is a surefire sign to visit us at Sweeney Service right away!
