Over time, the gauge that indicates battery life may show that the charge is less than optimum. The decrease in power may occur for various reasons. The battery posts may become corroded and require cleaning. The battery cables may wear out and require replacing. Either scenario results in a poor connection. The problem might also involve the alternator.

But, if the battery is at the end of its lifespan, it needs replacing. Batteries are available in the traditional lead-acid variety or the newer lithium version. Lithium batteries may cost two to three times the amount of a lead-acid battery. But, they are more efficient and have a longer lifespan.

Whatever battery used to replace the old version, it must be the model recommended by the vehicle's manufacturer. When noticing an electrical problem with the vehicle, schedule an appointment at our Washington, PA Jefferson Auto garage. One of our qualified technicians will assess the problem and recommended the needed remedy.
