Noticing your battery life getting low? Don’t risk getting stranded in a sketchy parking lot or on the side of the highway on your way to Fort Lauderdale. Instead, we at Vista Volkswagen Pompano Beach hire factory-trained and certified technicians who understand which batteries work best for your specific make and model whether it’s a new Taos or an older Jetta (or anything in between). When you stop by, we also put your needs first, whether it’s answering questions, helping you with an auto repair, or recommending which power source will optimize your drives. Get started today by scheduling a Volkswagen battery replacement service at Vista Volkswagen Pompano Beach to get you back to starting your ignition on demand and keeping your electrical work fully functioning.
In short, your battery sends electrical currents to start your vehicle while also controlling your electrical features like your infotainment system, cabin lights, and even luxury features like your heated seats. However, over time, your battery drains, which eventually leads to the above features not working as they should—which could mean your motor refusing to crank, leaving you stranded without a jump or a new power source. Thankfully, replacements only take minutes to complete—and restore all your electrical functions so that you can enjoy smooth and comfortable cruises.
Little feels less convenient than taking a day off work because your car won’t start; thankfully, you can avoid this issue by scheduling a battery replacement the instant you notice any of the following signs. For starters, the first time you need a jump start to crank your motor indicates your battery life is nearing its end—and you’ll want to replace your power source before a jump fails to get your engine running. You’ll also want us to take a look at your battery since your ignition refusing to start on its own could also be a more serious issue if it’s not tied to your power source—and the faster we can diagnose the problem, the less issues you’ll encounter in the long run.
Even when your motor runs fine, pop your hood and look for any visible battery damage. Some issues like corrosion and leaks will require a replacement to fix, otherwise your battery stops working to the point where a jump start won’t help you get moving. Many times, damaged power sources will even emit a smell like a rotting egg to let you know of a critical leak.
Since your battery is tied to your electrical work, you’ll also notice issues like dimming lights and electric features like your phone charger and radio not working as they should. In this case, take your ride into our service center, and we’ll make sure your battery is the issue instead of faulty wiring before making any fixes.
Alongside all the above issues, you’ll often see your check engine light pop on, letting you know of power source problems—not to worry though, our technicians can install a new battery to help fix the above faults.
Even when you don’t notice the above problems, you’ll still need to replace your battery from time to time, which is 3-5 years for most vehicles. Keep in mind that battery life varies heavily from driver to driver, so if you’re ever unsure, have us check your battery for you, and we’ll let you know if you’ll want to consider a new power source.
While you’ll eventually need a new battery, you can prolong the lifespan of your current power source through basic habits like driving more often—when you only take short and infrequent rides, your battery uses more energy to get your car started, which hurts your power source in the long run—so don’t be afraid to take your car out for the weekend or for a quick cruise down the highway every couple of days.
Little destroys your battery faster than leaving your lights on when you leave the car. Thankfully, most Volkswagen models warn you when you’re about to leave your vehicle with your headlamps still powered on; however, if you leave these lights illuminated overnight, you’re almost guaranteed to experience power issues in the morning—so double check that you power off your lights when you’re done driving.
Lastly, pop your hood from time to time and keep your battery clean—corrosion on your terminals can create voltage problems, which will require a battery replacement to fix. Also, keeping the corrosion away grants easier access to your connectors, which makes getting a jump-start faster and easier when needed.
Don’t risk your power source losing energy at an inconvenient time. Instead, schedule a battery replacement at Vista Volkswagen Pompano Beach today to help restore your electrical features and restore your motor to cranking when you need. We’re also here to help with your needs—let us know how we can assist when you stop by, and we’ll work our hardest to answer your questions or recommend services based on your specific models.
