The battery in your car is an integral part for any of the components to operate. Without this one simple item nothing will function on the car! Typically a car battery will last 4-6 years in our area. While automotive batteries are rechargeable there is a limit to the number of times that you can run the battery down and restore its operation.
How do you know if the battery needs replacement?
Batteries are rated in Cold Cranking Amperage or CCA. Every battery has a CCA rating usually displayed on the top of the battery. A specialized battery tester can determine the available CCA. During your routine service visits we will check the available CCA of your battery and let you know if the battery is falling below the standard.
What is the best kind of battery to use?
There are a variety of battery options available. Frank’s Servicenter offers multiple options although our preference is AC Delco batteries. AC Delco has proven to be a strong and reliable supplier offering a great value and strong warranty. Our new AC Delco Professional batteries will come with a minimum 30 month free replacement warranty and many options are 42 Months and beyond. Check with your service consultant for details.
