Don’t put up with the frustration of a poorly performing battery any longer. You deserve a functional vehicle that doesn’t break down each time you turn the key. We are conveniently located in Baton Rouge and can help with our expertise, tools, technology, and genuine OEM parts, all under one roof.
Your car battery is necessary for your vehicle to start, but do you know why? The battery is what provides the necessary electrical current to the electrical components within your vehicle. It powers the starter, motor, headlights, accessories and technology within your Ford car, truck or SUV. The components will not function if the battery cannot supply this power. That is when you will need to have your vehicle jump-started.
If you suspect your car battery is having trouble, such as a clicking sound when starting, a slow crank, or dim headlights, bring your vehicle in for a battery inspection. We can run full diagnostics and assess the condition of your battery and its terminals. We will check for damage, leaks, and a lack of current. We can advise you on its remaining viability and whether it needs to be repaired or replaced. Get the answers you need, so you can make the decision about the way forward.
Unfortunately, your car battery drains over time, at no fault of your own. It is simply a slow deterioration with regular use. When this happens, it cannot provide sufficient electrical current to the components within your Ford that require it. While you may be able to charge it temporarily by having it jump-started and driving it around for a few miles, this is not a permanent fix. The next time you try to start your car, whether a day or week later, you will likely experience the same problem. Don’t get stuck when you have somewhere important you need to be. The only permanent fix for a failing battery is a replacement. We offer new car batteries for sale and can install them for you quickly and properly, ensuring the various connections are sound.
