Battery Test Service near Naperville, IL

Battery Test Service near Naperville, IL

If you’ve ever experienced a dead car battery, you know just how inconvenient it can be. Whether you have to call a family member to pick you up or request a jump from a stranger, it’s always an annoyance when this component fails to do its job. To prevent this occurrence from happening in the future, stop by Bill Kay Chevrolet and have our team of technicians take a look under the hood of your precious set of wheels.

What Does a Car Battery Do?

Before we dive into the warning signs and the general maintenance timeline you should follow, allow us to tell why the battery is such a crucial component on your vehicle. Essentially, this part stores the power you need to get your engine started. Without it, you wouldn’t even be able to leave your driveway and head to work in the morning. That being said, once your powertrain is running, the alternator recharges your battery so it’s good to go the next time you turn your key in the ignition. The alternator also provides the majority of the electricity once your car is on, which means the battery can mostly take it easy once you’re on the road.

Timeline and Warning Signs

Generally speaking, batteries can last anywhere from three to five years, depending on the climate that you live in and other variables. Because of this broad timeline, it can be difficult to determine when you should have this component replaced—especially if you don’t keep up with regular tests. That’s why we always recommend stopping by our dealership to have our team take a look as soon as you see any warning signs. Speaking of which, there are a few indicators you can watch out for. If your vehicle is having trouble starting in the morning or your check engine light is on, you’ll definitely want to make visiting a service bay a priority, Additionally, if you see corrosion around the terminals or see that the battery case is bloating, it’s a sign you need to have someone give your car some attention.

Our Service Department

When you stop into the Service Department at Bill Kay Chevrolet, we’ll immediately talk with you to find out any concerns you might have. After that, we’ll get to work while you kick back and relax in our lounge. If the problem you’re experiencing has to do with your battery, we’ll start by checking how much charge this component gives off. From there, we’ll do a visual inspection and clean off any residue that’s built up over time. Should we determine that you’re in need of a fresh battery, we’ll let you know before installing something new. Before stopping by, consider taking a look at our service specials to see if you can save money with your visit.

Our salesman was a very professional sales person, and made the purchase very quick, and enjoyable. I would recommend this dealership and salesperson to anyone wanting to purchase a vehicle

I had done a great deal of searching online and when I decided on type of vehicle, I sent out messages to several car dealerships. What stood out immediately with Bill Kay Chevrolet.....I wasn't harassed! I was contacted by John. He reached out and left it there. There were not multiple phone calls nor multiple emails and texts. He left it up to me to respond if I wanted to. I did. I am very pleased with my Tuscon. The salesman was kind, friendly and very helpful. The process was quick. Jesse in finance looked out for my best interest and that process was also seamless. The last time I bought a car it was a 5 hour process, I was in and out in 2.5 hours from walking, test driving, asking questions, and signing papers. Highly recommend.
