Battery Replacement and Maintenance near Portland 

Your car's battery is essential to the life of your car. Think of it as your vehicle's heart. It constantly pumps a steady stream of life in your car. Without a heart, you don't have life, same with your car's battery. No battery, no life.

When you insert the key in your car's ignition and turn the switch or push the button to 'ON,' a signal is sent to the car's battery. Upon receiving this signal, the car battery converts chemical energy into electrical energy. This electrical power is delivered to the starter to crank the engine. The battery also provides power to the car's lights and other accessories.

Cold temperatures force car batteries to work harder to retain the same heat and energy. That's why cars often stall after being out in the harsh weather for a few days. It may be so severe that you have to purchase a new battery. Whether you need a completely new battery, or maintenance to your current battery, our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram service center near Portland is here to help!

Battery Maintenance Tips

  • Check your battery every now and then to make sure its terminal connections are clean, snug and protected from the elements. Signs of corrosion or leakage could mean that your battery is no longer operating as well as it should.
  • Always unplug accessories and turn off lights when your car is turned off.
  • Keep the battery in cooler places whenever possible. Heat damages batteries.
  • Scrub corrosion from the terminals with a solution of water and baking soda.
