Automotive Tips from Hitch Automotive: Battery Testing

Posted August 25, 2019 11:47 AM

The simple fact is that 70% of car batteries fail within 4 years. They just need to be replaced at Hitch Automotive when they are no longer able to hold a full charge.

Batteries are a big ticket item for most Lake in the Hills drivers and it’s tempting to put off buying a new one as long as possible. But a battery that cannot hold a full charge requires the alternator to work extra hard, causing it to wear out prematurely.

Your Hitch Automotive service advisor can test your battery to see if it should be replaced. Testing is a good idea for IL drivers because a battery might still be good, but become dead because of a bad alternator or even a worn serpentine belt and tensioner.
