The battery is one of the most crucial parts of your vehicle. If your battery fails, so does everything else. Without a battery, there is no spark, and without a spark, your vehicle isn’t going anywhere. This is why keeping your battery healthy is important. Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and your vehicle’s battery will in time need to be replaced. Whether it has simply run its course or its longevity has been compromised by any number of external factors, if you are in need of a new battery and are located in the greater Wauwatosa area, North Avenue Automotive is here to help.
While the most common way to find out that your battery is dead is the inability to fire up your vehicle, there are other, easy to detect signs that it might be on its last legs. Look out for symptoms such as:
- Your engine cranking slower than usual
- Needing to jump start your vehicle to get it running
- Warning lights on your dashboard not going out once your engine is running
- Certain electrical components, such as the clock or radio, aren’t working
- Your fuses keep blowing
If you have noticed any of these symptoms, North Avenue Automotive strongly recommends that you schedule an appointment without delay so that one of our professional mechanics may run a diagnostic test on your battery and determine whether it needs to be replaced. Delaying in having your battery inspected may lead to your being stranded without battery power, which is always less than convenient.
