Schedule Your Battery Service At K&M Wayland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

The battery under the hood of your automobile is responsible for a number of critical operations, including the ignition of your engine and many interior features. Your typical car battery is designed to last anywhere from three to five years, depending on the mileage you've put on and the kind of driving that you've done. If you find that you're having issues with your battery, we here at K&M Wayland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Wayland, MI would be happy to help. We can provide you with battery diagnostics, battery repair, and we can replace your battery if you need a new one.

Signs That You Need Battery Service

There are a few things to watch out for when you suspect battery issues. These include:

  • Having issues with the startup of your vehicle could indicate a battery problem. You may notice that a few cranks occur, but the engine never starts. Clicking noises when trying to start up your engine may take place if there isn't enough battery power to get things moving.
  • You may also notice that the lights in your vehicle are dim. This can apply to your interior cabin lights, but also to your front headlights on the exterior of the vehicle.
  • Having to get jump started periodically by someone nearby can indicate that your battery is getting old, or it may be in need of repair. It's never convenient to find yourself stuck in a parking lot or in your driveway, so it's a good idea to make sure you seek battery inspection and maintenance from our Grand Rapids area service center.
  • If you know that you've had the same battery for more than five years, it's a good idea to think about getting a new one before yours starts to fail.

Batteries in Used Vehicle

When you purchase a used vehicle, you'll likely be getting the battery that was already under the hood for the previous owner. There are situations where we'll replace the battery for you prior to the point of sale, but more often than not we simply need to inspect the vehicle for battery issues before putting it on our sales lot. Our certified pre-owned models go through a very involved inspection process, and battery service is one of these items. You're more than welcome to invest in a brand-new battery from our parts department, and our service department can help you with the installation process.

New Vehicle Batteries

A new vehicle comes with a brand-new battery, so it's a good idea to have it periodically checked every six months or so. We check all of the connections on the battery. We also check to see what the current charge volume is. If the charge is low, we charge the battery to see if it can be charged successfully. We also see if the battery can hold that charge for a proper duration of time. After a few years, there may be a time when investing in a new battery is a wise decision just for reliability and peace of mind.
