Your car battery may not be getting the love that it needs in Schaumburg. At Patrick MINI, we have a few tips to help you with your battery. This includes determining when it’s time to replace it.

When you bring your vehicle in for preventative maintenance, like an oil change, have the technician measure the voltage of your battery. It’s also important to keep corrosion off of the battery posts. This can be handled during regularly scheduled appointments so that you know you’re caring for your battery.

When your vehicle is exposed to high temperatures on a regular basis, it can cause your battery life to drop significantly. If you go to start your car and it takes an extra second to turn the ignition, it’s a good sign that your battery is going. You will want to get it replaced before it dies on you entirely.
