Unless you’re driving a Chevy Bolt EV or another electric car, the engine in your vehicle still needs electricity to start when you turn the key. The battery provides that energy. Like a 9-volt battery in a remote control car, the battery in your car will wear out and eventually need to be replaced. When your vehicle needs a new battery, get a quality OEM battery at LaFontaine Chevrolet Buick GMC of St. Clair and let our service experts take care of the installation. We’ll select the right battery for your vehicle for reliable starting power each and every time.
As you drive, the vehicle’s charging system recharges the battery to have more juice left to start your car again after you arrive at your destination. If the alternator on your car is bad, the battery might drain, and the vehicle may not start. This doesn’t always mean the battery itself is bad. Our technicians can perform a battery health test to find out for sure. We can determine if your battery is simply too dead to hold a charge or if your vehicle isn’t recharging the battery properly as you drive.
Depending on your vehicle’s size, engine, and electrical accessories, every vehicle needs a specific battery. Batteries are rated by a measurement called Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) – the number of amps the battery can provide at 32 degrees. The battery also needs to physically fit exactly in the battery compartment, usually located under the hood. Our technicians can look up your vehicle and ensure we have the perfect battery for your car in stock before you arrive so we can install it quickly and get you back on the road.
