Car Battery Replacement

The battery supplies electrical power to the starter along with the rest of the electrical components of the vehicle to start the engine. When the engine starts running the charging system takes over to provide electricity to the various vehicle electrical systems. The battery cable terminals connect the battery to the electrical system.

A vehicle battery has several important functions:

  • Providing power to the starter motor, ignition system, fuel system and other electrical devices during engine starting.
  • Storing energy.
  • Acts as a voltage stabilizer.
  • Providing power to the electronic components as required when the vehicle is off (e.g., digital radios, clocks, door locks, alarms, vehicle computers, etc).

Battery replacement may be necessary if you experience any of the following:

  • Slower than normal or interrupted turnover when starting your engine.
  • Battery discharge light on the vehicle instrument panel is lit.
