The Importance of Battery Maintenance in Arlington

Chevrolet Battery ServiceIf you truly want to prolong the life of your car battery, routine battery maintenance is the key. There is a selection of annual services you should have performed on your Chevy to keep your battery in tip top shape. A battery diagnostic test should be conducted each year to make sure your battery is functioning properly, and your battery terminals should be routinely cleaned to prevent corrosion. We also recommend having your battery cable ends inspected to prevent damage that could lead to battery failure. These components can also be replaced when needed.

In addition to these battery maintenance services, you can  protect your car battery at home by making sure you always shut off your car lights before exiting the vehicle and unplugging any power adapters when they're not in use. You should also drive your Chevy car for more than 20 minutes a day to ensure your battery is being fully charged each drive. This  can help prevent a shortened battery life.
