Do you have a dead battery, misfiring starter, or alternator problems? Identifying the source of an electrical problem in your vehicle can be challenging. Whether it's the alternator, battery, or another component of the electrical system, modern vehicles heavily depend on these systems, leading to a variety of symptoms when issues arise.

If you notice a slowdown in your vehicle's electronics, see the battery light illuminated, or hear unusual noises from your vehicle, don't hesitate to bring it to your Midas at 451 Southbridge Street, Auburn, MA 01501. Call now at 774-582-6438 or book an appointment online.

The car battery plays a vital role in starting your engine and storing power generated by the alternator. It also powers all secondary electrical systems such as lights, the radio, power windows and seats. The battery is the heart of your vehicle, so it's crucial to monitor its condition and replace it promptly if it malfunctions.

When should I replace my car battery?

When your car battery is weakened or completely dead, identifying the issue is usually straightforward. A car battery needs replacing when its capacity falls below 12 volts, a common occurrence for most batteries after three to seven years of use.

Here are a few indicators that your car battery may require replacement:

  • Difficulty Starting the Car: As a battery ages, its ability to provide sufficient power decreases. When the cranking amps drop below a critical threshold, starting your car becomes challenging or impossible.
  • Your battery won’t accept a charge: You hear rapid clicks instead of your engine cranking -- and jump-starting doesn’t help. You may need a new battery to get rolling again.
  • Malfunctioning Electrical Components: As a battery weakens and its voltage decreases, vehicle electrical components may malfunction, such as the security system. If you encounter electrical issues, it's advisable to have the battery tested promptly.
  • Battery or Charging System Warning Light: If the battery or charging system warning light illuminates, it's essential to have a mechanic conduct basic tests to assess if a battery replacement is necessary.

How long does it take to replace a car battery?

Midas at 451 Southbridge Street typically completes a car battery replacement in 20-30 minutes for most vehicles. Our service involves cleaning the battery tray and terminals to remove battery acid and debris. We also ensure the proper recycling of your old battery.
