It takes a strong battery to run your car's essential and accessory systems, such as the on-board computer, power steering, A/C, lights and more.
- Most batteries are rated to last five years or more.
- Signs that it’s time to replace your battery are slow starts, dim headlights, and sluggish electrical accessories. Don’t wait until your battery is dead.
- Have the pros at Monro check your battery and charging system periodically with a modern analyzer.
- When your battery no longer holds an adequate charge, be sure to buy a battery with the capacity to run all of your vehicle’s electrical systems.
Selecting a Replacement Battery
Your vehicle owner’s manual lists battery specifications. Match to the ratings on the battery label:
- Group size – battery dimensions and placement of terminals.
- Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) – ability of the battery to crank the engine at 0 degrees. (Cold temperatures slow electrochemical activity and thicken engine oil.) Make sure your battery meets or exceeds the CCA for your vehicle.
- Reserve capacity (RC) – the number of minutes your car will run on battery power alone. If you live in a warmer climate, you might want to give more weight to this rating.
- Freshness – don’t buy a battery older than six months.
