As cars become more technologically advanced, the importance of your vehicle’s battery becomes more important. In the old days, a car battery essentially worked, or it didn’t; if it was good enough to start the car, it was good enough. Moderns vehicles are a different story. A faulty battery can cause a variety of issues, including engine codes, sensor failures, irregular transmission behavior, and the list goes on.
Battery failure often causes issues that are commonly misdiagnosed, and in the hands of the wrong auto repair shop, a mechanic may spend hundreds of your hard-earned dollars chasing problems that don’t exist. At KG Truck & Auto in Glen Burnie, MD, our mechanics are familiar with modern vehicles and the problems that accompany them.
Most cars manufactured in the last decade or so rely heavily on a healthy battery. Even if the battery turns the engine over, without proper voltage your vehicle may refuse to start. If it does start, it may run poorly or inefficiently, and failure of sensitive and expensive onboard electronics may occur. Bad batteries are also a leading cause of premature alternator failure, an expense that can be avoided if proper battery maintenance is observed.
The bottom line is, batteries have a lot more responsibility than simply starting your vehicle. KG Truck & Auto will diagnose your battery problems or catch them before they start. Our knowledgeable auto mechanics will test for any symptoms of a failing battery, provide an affordable, quality, and correct replacement if necessary, and keep you on the road trouble-free.
