As a Hyundai service department, we provide complete battery care for any Hyundai model near Oak Lawn, IL. Often, knowing the ideal time to replace a battery comes down to an inspection that detects a performance decline before it dies and leaves you stranded. If your battery is over two years old or showing warning signs of decline, we invite you to Happy Hyundai in Oak Lawn, IL, for a battery inspection by a certified technician.
If you notice any of the warning signs of a dying car battery, it is wise to get it inspected promptly and replaced if it fails the inspection. Here are the telltale signs of a faulty battery:
With a dead battery immobilizing your vehicle, and with the best batteries operating in the best conditions only lasting for a few years, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your battery. You should have your battery routinely inspected after two years of service, as it is an easy way to promote reliability when you need it most and to prevent getting stranded. Our battery inspection service at Happy Hyundai is a two-part assessment that targets the battery’s physical condition and electrical performances to confirm specifications.
Our certified technician begins by inspecting the battery’s physical conditions looking for bloating, disfiguration, leaking fluid, and terminal corrosion. If the battery is not at specifications due to one of these factors, it is an automatic referral for replacement service because case damage and corrosion are telltale warning signs of a soon-to-be-dead battery.
If all is well with the battery case and terminal connection physically, our certified technician will move to the next step of the inspection. We will use a special voltmeter to test two electrical performances: cold-cranking amps being sent to the engine starter; and, electricity held within the battery as reserve capacity. If the battery is not providing or holding sufficient voltage, it will be referred for replacement service as the sole means of restoring its performance.
