Honda Battery Repair And Replacement In Elgin, IL


Battery Services

Battery Services in Elgin, IL

The battery in your vehicle is an important part of the entire system. Without a working battery, your vehicle won't start and you can't drive it at all. At times, batteries may display signs of failure that can actually be repaired with battery services instead of purchasing an entirely new battery. Your battery goes through constant cycles throughout its life of charging and discharging and when they aren't working, you can have a stranded vehicle, which may require a tow truck--this is an expensive item that you want to avoid.

Signs That You Need a New Battery

Conventional auto batteries are filled with a mixture of water and sulfuric acid. When the battery wears, some of the mixtures may evaporate while disturbing the mixture and it can overheat the battery or cause it to boil. When this occurs, you will notice a rotten egg smell in the engine compartment. If your battery is starting to fail, it will crank your engine but slowly and this can lead to it not cranking at all. You may see the battery light on your dashboard is illuminated. This can be a sign that your battery isn't receiving or sustaining a charge, as it should. You may also notice that your headlights are dim or your power electronics are working slowly or not at all. You should schedule service as soon as possible to avoid having a completely failed battery that needs replacing.


Battery Inspection and Testing Services

You may have a build-up of corrosion on your battery posts and cable connectors. This can be due to a loose battery cable and it can be cleaned off by a technician and maybe your battery will function properly again. If you have a battery with cells that have caps, a technician will remove the caps, fill each battery cell to the correct level and then check the condition and charge of the battery. He will use a hydrometer to test the electrolyte in each cell and if the level is ok, it may only need to be charged to function correctly. If these items are all okay, you may actually need a new battery replacement.
