Battery Issues

The battery and alternator supply power to the entire vehicle, and a dead battery can kill the entire car. However, replacing or recharging a dead battery in European cars isn’t always as easy as it seems. Several European models use new AGM batteries in place of traditional lead-acid batteries. AGM batteries have greater durability and cycling resistance, but they require specialized charging equipment to avoid damage and do come at a higher cost. Additionally, a specialist may have to reprogram or reset the computer control system to work seamlessly with the new battery.

Replacing the battery might not be the solution to your recurring problem.

If you would like to make sure you’re Honda, Toyota, Jeep, Kia, Audi, Chevrolet, GMC, Dodge, Chrysler, Ford, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, Cadillac, and VW is operating like it should for the rest of the year, bring it in for a checkup at Advanced Automotive. Call our friendly staff to schedule an appointment and we’ll get you and your vehicle back out on the road again in short order. Call 408-737-1055 today to make an appointment.
