Electrical Inspections and Battery Tests
We’re happy to conduct a routine battery check for your car at our shop. The check includes a test and a visual inspection of the terminals, cables, and battery fluid. We recommend testing your battery every 5,000 miles or during every oil change. During the inspection, we also use a load-testing device to check your battery’s voltage for its charging system. Many cars require all different types of batteries and voltages. We’re equipped to service all makes and models.
If you enter your car and the dome lights aren’t on, and then your engine doesn’t start, you most likely have a dead battery. Your vehicle may have an indicator light to also tell you. Most of the time, you can jump your vehicle. But if your battery refuses to hold charge, it needs to be replaced. Further inspection can identify if you have an alternator issue as well. We will look for this during our service.

If you need to jump your vehicle to bring it in for a replacement, turn off all electronics, including seat warmers and the stereo, while you bring it to us.
