Battery Service and Replacement in Lafayette

Your car battery is an easy thing to forget about. It's something that doesn't need attention very often, but as soon as your vehicle refuses to start it will be the first thing you check on. However, you can avoid being left stranded by having your battery checked at Nissan of Lafayette!

When to Have Your Battery Checked Out

A good rule of thumb is to have your battery tested at least once per year, though twice is a better idea, especially if you rack up the miles. Either way, a simple battery test can be performed alongside a tire rotation or oil change to let you know how your battery is doing, and it will help catch any potential problems before they can leave you stuck on the side of the road.

Of course, any car battery that is more than four years old should be replaced as soon as possible, as it can quickly deteriorate in between regular checkups with little to no warning.

Signs your battery may be failing include:

  • Difficulty starting your engine
  • Interior lights dimmer than normal
  • Interior clock is always incorrect
  • Car noticeably loses power while driving when air conditioning turns on

You can even perform a simple at-home test to see if your battery might be running out of juice. Point your vehicle at a flat surface and put it in park with the engine still running. Turn on the headlights and then turn on the air conditioning. With a healthy battery, the light may dim momentarily then return to normal. With a failing battery, the headlights will remain dim until you turn the A/C off again. If this is the case, it's definitely time for a battery test and most likely a replacement.
