Battery Testing and Replacement at Toyota of Somerset

Every modern vehicle runs on one or multiple batteries which work in conjunction with the engine to provide stable power throughout the vehicle. Unless you drive a fully-electric car, your vehicle cannot fully function without a working battery and engine system in place. The average battery for an internal combustion car, when properly maintained, can last for up to five years. When you need your battery tested or replaced, you can bring your Toyota here to our dealership in Somerset, KY. Toyota of Somerset is proudly serving the Richmond, KY area.

Keeping Your Battery Maintained and Charged

Unless you drive a Toyota hybrid or plug-in electric hybrid, the battery of your Toyota will expire every three to five years. Getting the battery tested and maintained here at dealership, at least twice a year, is a great way to ensure it continues to run for as long as possible. Our technicians can clean the battery and its housing terminal of dirt and corrosion, while checking to ensure the battery is tightly fastened in its place and carries a full charge. We have state-of-the-art technology to test your battery's current power output to determine if you need a new battery.

Ways to Preserve Your Battery Live

Whether you drive a new Toyota, used car, or Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV), there are several steps you can take on a daily basis to ensure your battery maintains optimal change for as long as possible:

  • Limit Short Rides: Consider the daily necessity of your driving habits and, especially if you have errands to run, whether or not public transit or walking are better approaches.
  • Turn off All Lights: Keep in mind all lights, including the headlights, taillights, reading lights and even the dome light in your car. If you're not in the vehicle, none of these lights should still be activated.
  • Electronics: You should limit the frequency with which you use electronics, particularly while the vehicle is idle. Using electronics while the engine is active, yet idle, can drain battery life much quicker.
  • Inspect Battery: If you do not have time to make it in for a service appointment twice a year, you should keep an eye on your battery to ensure it remains clean and free of corrosion (rust). You should also check to ensure it remains fastened tightly in it housing unit.

When to Get the Battery Replaced

While some batteries have a longer lifespan than others, nothing lasts forever. Eventually the TrueStart battery of your Toyota will run low on power, which will show itself through many signs and symptoms. Make sure you keep an eye on the following signs your battery needs replacement:

  • Diminished headlight brightness
  • Engine stalling/unresponsive when cold cranking
  • Loss of power
  • Strange, sulfuric "rotten egg" smell from under the hood
  • "Battery" dashboard warning light on
