Battery Repair/Replacement in Vaughan, ON

Canadian weather conditions can be extremely challenging on all components of your vehicle's engine, particularly the battery. Over the years, your car battery will become less efficient with every charge and will progressively deteriorate every time it is energized. After 3 years of use, you should consider installing a new battery. Leaving an old car battery in place can cause various safety and reliability problems, resulting in larger repairs down the road. Without a healthy battery, other components of your engine will also begin to deteriorate rapidly or fail altogether. At Maple Honda, we recommend your Honda battery is inspected at your next scheduled service appointment to confirm the battery is mounted securely, and the connections are clean, fitted, and corrosion-free. Our factory-trained technicians will inspect the condition and charge of your battery. This diagnostic check will estimate the temperature at which your battery may fail, give you an idea of how much battery life you have left, and test the conditions of the cables. However, if you notice any of the following symptoms of a faulty battery, contact us as soon as possible: slow engine crank, check engine light, low battery fluid level, swelling or bloating battery case, or a rotten egg smell.
