Richmond Car Battery
There are so many electric systems on vehicles, the battery is more important today than ever. If your car’s battery is dying, some of the electrical components may not work the way they are supposed to. Is it harder to start or needs to be jumped more frequently? We have the tools and technology to diagnose the issue and assist with your car’s battery replacement and testing needs.
A battery can also die unexpectedly if a light or other electrical component of your vehicle is left on for an extended period of time. Make sure you don’t leave things like your cell phone and GPS plugged into the car charger. Your car sitting for an extended period of time without running and extreme temperatures can also affect the battery.

As automotive technology continues to change, it is more important than ever to have a professional change the battery, to keep from damaging the computerized components.
