Subaru Battery Service and Repairs in Stamford CT

The Battery Services Stamford Drivers Need

If you've noticed your car behaving poorly, you might begin to suspect the battery. A dying battery can cause issues throughout your Subaru. There are some ways to figure out if it's the battery at fault or something else, but the surest way will be to bring it in for an inspection at Subaru Stamford.

Things to Know to Keep Your Car's Battery in Peak Condition

Here are some of the battery related questions our technicians hear the most. If you have one that we haven't addressed just reach out!

How Long Does a Car Battery Last?

Car batteries typically last for about three to five years depending on the climate. In warmer areas of the country, this can be much lower, but here around Greenwich, you should be able to expect a lifespan of up to four to five years. Still, if you're noticing any of the issues outlined here, even if it seems early, it's worth bringing your car in for us to check out.

Signs You Should Come in for a Battery Inspection

Since the battery powers everything from the starter to the lights to the infotainment system, it can be hard to know if it's your battery or something else failing. While some of the following signs might be due to something else, these are some of the surest signs that your battery is failing, and you should at least come get an inspection.

Your Car Battery Light is On

This is an easy one. If your car battery light is on, then something has gone wrong with your battery and your car's systems know it. It might just be a loose cable or a bad alternator, but we can make sure there's nothing else at play when you bring it in.

Your Car is Slow to Start

A bad spark plug might have intermittent starts, but a bad battery around Norwalk will generally be slow to start your car. It can struggle to give the starter enough power to quickly start the car for one reason or another. You can often speed up the start with a jump start, and that's a sure sign your battery's at fault. Either way, we can confirm the problem and fix it up for you.

The Car's Electronics Behave Strangely

When your battery is failing, it can struggle to power things like the starter, but still keep the dash lights on, so don't think that because you see lights your battery is fine. You should also watch for odd behavior from your headlights. If they work fine while you're driving around White Plains, but as soon as you turn off the car, they go dim or even turn off, you should definitely bring it in for an inspection.

The Battery is Bulging or Has Corroded Connectors

If you pop the hood of your car and can see the battery doesn't look healthy, it's not. The metal connectors on the battery should be mostly clear of gunk, but battery leaks can cause corrosion and chemical buildup around them. A bulging battery is never something you want to see. If the normal box-like shape of the battery is distorted, it won't last much longer.

We Can Test Your Battery and Diagnose the Problem

Our technicians are factory-trained to properly diagnose battery problems. We can check that the battery is putting out the correct voltage and find any loose connections throughout your Subaru. We'll make sure to find out what the root of any problems you encountered on the Westport roads are.
