About Vehicle Batteries


Anyone who has owned a vehicle has experienced battery problems. However, a battery that seems to be dead may not be the actual dilemma. When having any starting issues with your vehicle, let one of our Jaguar of Tacoma technicians assess the problem and help.

Sometimes, the problem involves corrosion on the battery posts, which prevent electrical flow. Removing the corrosion may remedy the problem. Checking the battery voltage determines if the battery needs charging. Some batteries require added fluid to the cells.

When needing to replace a battery, there are different types available. Lead-acid batteries are traditional. However, one might opt for a lithium-based battery, which is more efficient and has a longer lifespan. But, the added benefits come at a steeper price. There are nickel-cadmium batteries.
