If you’ve been driving for a few years, you’ve likely experienced a dead battery at least once. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of heading into your car to go to work only to hear the dreaded click when you turn the key in the ignition. Battery issues are some of the most common problems that we encounter here in our Hyundai service center, and our team of experienced mechanics is well-equipped to replace your battery with a new one or test it to see if has adequate charge.  

The high-tech new Hyundai cars of today make more electrical demands than ever before. Your car’s battery has to be able to meet those demands in a variety of ways. The role of the battery is twofold. It supplies electrical current for the starter motor to crank the engine, and it also provides power to all electrical accessories when the engine is off. Throughout all this, the battery also acts as a voltage stabilizer for the entire electrical system.  

So how often should you replace your car’s battery? The answer to this question depends on a number of factors including the make and model of your car, how many miles you drive per year, and the conditions in which you drive. However, a general rule is that batteries should be replaced every five years and should be checked at the first sign of any trouble. These signs of battery malfunction include the starter motor cranking the engine slowly, dim headlamps, and the battery/charging light being illuminated.  

When it comes time to replace your battery or check its health, turn to the experts here at the Hyundai service center near Virginia Beach, VA.
