Hyundai Battery Needs in New Bern, NC

Why is my car battery light on?

The little light shaped like a battery that appears on your dashboard actually may have nothing to do with your car battery. This light indicates that the alternator is not generating enough energy to run the car and recharge your battery. In short? Get this checked out to make sure you can continue to power your car, use your AC, listen to your radio, etc.

When does a car battery need to be changed?

If any of the following are true it's time to take your car in and let the experts take a look at your battery:

  • Battery is more than 2 years old
  • Battery has outlived the life of its warranty period
  • Battery looks corroded
  • Battery has needed a jump several times recently

Are car battery chargers good?

In the case of an emergency, yes. If you're having to use it daily (or every other day), no, and you probably need to consider a replacement battery.

What causes car batteries to drain?

The top three enemies to your fully juiced battery are user error (like leaving the lights on), a parasitic drain (components that continue to run after you turn your car off), or a bad charging system.

How can I tell if my battery is dying?

A slow engine start, trouble using electric systems in your car (like power windows), or warning lights are easy ways to know if you should be paying closer attention to your battery function.

If you have battery problems or just more questions we didn't get to above, come visit us at Hyundai New Bern for assistance. We love to serve our customers from New Bern, North Carolina, as well as nearby Jacksonville, Morehead City, and Greenville.
