Charge Up: Hyundai Battery Service in Livonia, MI

How often do you think about your car battery? Probably not until your car refuses to start. However, there are signs that it’s time to bring your Hyundai in for battery service. Our Livonia, MI Hyundai dealership provides comprehensive auto service, including battery checks and changes.

Here are four common symptoms that hint at a bad battery. When it’s time for service, come into Lafontaine Hyundai, and we’ll take care of you.

1. Slow Starting Engine

If you have to turn the key several times before your car starts, it could be a battery problem. In some cases, it means the battery is dying and can’t keep enough charge to turn over the engine. We suggest you bring your Hyundai Kona into our Hyundai service center.

2. Cranking Sound

If you only hear a cranking sound, the battery might not have enough voltage to keep the engine running. Take the battery out, recharge it, and then put it back in. If the car won’t start the next time, you probably need a new battery.

3. Frequent Car-Jumps

If you have to use jumper cables several times in a single week, the battery should probably be replaced. Jumping a car too many times can damage the battery, as well as other parts like the starter and alternator.

4. Battery Corrosion

It’s normal to see some corrosion around the battery and terminals. If the corrosion is mild, you can use car rust cleaner to get rid of it and prevent more damage. If the corrosion is more extensive, you could have a faulty or leaking battery.
