If a check battery light has illuminated on the dashboard of your vehicle, it could indicate several possible issues. Before we recommend car battery replacement, we will test the battery in your vehicle with a multimeter to determine the current amp levels and then charge the battery to ensure the battery can still hold a charge. We will also sand down the terminal connections, check the wires, and look for any corrosion or visible signs a car battery replacement is needed.

Sometimes, a check battery light will come on when there's a bad connection, but the car battery itself does not need to be replaced. Our mechanics will make an assessment during your VW battery service and let you know if a new car battery is needed. If so, we'll recommend some factory-approved replacement options.

How often should you replace your car battery?

Generally, a car battery should be replaced every 3-5 years depending on the battery in your vehicle, your driving habits, the climate you live in, and how well you care for your vehicle. Following the factory-prescribed maintenance schedule for your vehicle will help prolong the life of your car's battery. Ideally, warning signs of a failing car battery will present themselves before you're stuck with a car that no longer starts, so you can install a new car battery in time.

What are some signs that show you need a new car battery?

The best time for car battery replacement is before you need a new car battery. But, how do you know if you need a new battery if your car still starts? Common indicators your car battery needs to be replaced include visible signs of corrosion on the battery posts, terminals, or cables, as well as a slow engine crank or a check battery light on the dashboard. Also, a battery that is more than five years old will likely need to be replaced in the near future. If you are unsure of the age of your battery, it should have a date of installation written on it. If not, you can contact our dealership, and we can look up your service records.

What type of battery maintenance is needed on Volkswagen electric cars?

If you have a new Volkswagen ID.4 lease special parked in your garage, you might be wondering how to make your new EV's battery pack last as long as possible and how to maintain the electric motor and battery pack in your vehicle. We suggest you stay out of extreme temperatures by parking in the shade, don't charge the battery to full capacity every night if you only used a fraction of the battery's capacity, and avoid high-voltage DC charging on a regular basis.
