At the heart of your vehicle's electrical system is your car battery. We are all pretty familiar with these since they are easy to see under the hood and most of us have probably had to jump or change one at one point or another.

A dead battery is never a fun experience so fortunately there are some things that you can do to help maintain them and help them to last longer. Batteries have acids in them that can cause some corrosive build up on the contacts and cables. Periodically check these for that build up and if needed clean it off with a wire brush being careful not to get it on your skin or clothes.

If the buildup is too severe or cleaning it off doesn't help its performance at all then it may be time to bring your car, truck, or SUV into our service center here at Schaefer & Bierlein Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT in Frankenmuth, MI and let us get you a replacement battery installed.
