Depending on the situation, a dead battery can be an inconvenience or leave you stranded on the side of the road, but either way, it is a hassle you need not have to endure. A certified technician can quickly perform a diagnostic test to assess the strength of charge in the battery. Based on their findings, they can recommend whether the battery still has life and needs only to be charged on a machine or whether it should be completely replaced. Depending on the severity, a battery can be placed on a rapid charger and renewed to full capacity in less than an hour.
Should the battery need to be replaced, it is important to purchase a battery with enough cold cranking amps for your particular vehicle. Many people make the mistake of purchasing the least expensive battery available to save money, only to find that the unit does not contain enough voltage to operate all the electrical systems their car requires. In addition, it is always best to buy a battery with a prorated warranty, so that if anything does happen in the future, the vendor will replace or discount the cost of any new unit. Most batteries require a fairly simple removal and installation, just a couple of bolts to loosen the brackets holding the unit in place. Caution should be taken when reconnecting the battery cables to ensure that they are not crossed. Placing the wrong cable on the wrong battery terminal can extensively damage the electrical components of your car and lead to lots of money spent on repair.
Most auto parts stores, battery distributors, and mechanic shops offer a free battery check to provide the best information possible. While this may require a battery to be removed and taken to the store for a check, some dealerships or auto repair shops provide this service as well. Be sure to have the vendor show you the printed battery slip from the machine rather than just take their word for it. This keeps any unscrupulous vendor from charging you for a battery replacement when recharging would have sufficed.
