The experts at North York Chrysler believe that if you are going to learn one thing about your Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram or FIAT, it should be basic battery maintenance.
Without a healthy battery, your vehicle will not run at peak performance and can even leave you stranded at the worst times.
One of the most frequently asked questions for the team in the North York Chrysler Service Centre is how do you know when to replace your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM or FIAT's battery?
Because there is no one hard and fast replacement schedule for all cars, trucks, and SUVs we thought it would be helpful to tell our customers in the Greater Toronto Area the warning signs of a failing battery.
Common Warning Signs:
- Your starter motor is slow to turn over
- Your battery light stays illuminated while your engine is running
- Your battery loses power fast in cold or extended starts
- Your headlights dim when your engine idles
- The charge indicator on the top of your maintenance-free battery shows yellow or black
If you recognize any of these problems, or your battery is more than two years old, it is important to get to a certified service centre as soon as possible. This is especially important during our famed Canadian winters because the fact is the number of battery failures increase four-fold during this challenging time.
The battery maintenance specialists in the North York Chrysler Service Centre are here to test your battery and charging system and diagnose any critical problems. If the results point to current or impending battery failure, you may choose to replace your battery. Since we carry certified OEM Mopar parts and a full selection of the leading battery brands, we will always have the perfect battery to fit your specific Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM, and FIAT vehicle.
