At Rapids Honda, we operate a service department that provides a battery replacement service as an Express Service that gets our customers in and out with no appointment as quickly as possible. It is important to remember that the greatest threats to an automotive battery are extreme temperatures, wide temperature change between seasons, and years of service. This means batteries operating in Minnesota’s climate will generally experience a shorter service life due to environmental factors.
At Rapids Honda, a battery replacement service begins with the understanding that the battery is dying because it has started to experience declining performance or is already dead. If you are uncertain about the performance of your battery in terms of its reserve capacity and cold-cranking amps, we can perform an Express Service battery testing. After inspection and testing, we will know if you will need a new one. If you have a dead or dying battery, we can replace it quickly and conveniently with an OEM battery from our parts department.
With the automotive battery at the heart of the vehicle’s electrical system, the symptoms of a dying battery will usually surface with components requiring electricity to function properly. The battery is needed to start the engine and powers electronic components when the engine is not running. Battery life is limited by extreme temperatures and the fact that it is constantly sending and receiving electricity. We know that all batteries will eventually fail and we generally recommend replacing the battery proactively after a couple of years of service or if it begins showing symptoms of dying.
If your battery is more than 2 years old, it is an excellent decision to have it inspected before the coldest weather arrives in Minnesota. Here are the most common symptoms of a dead or dying battery:
