Acura Battery Replacement in Bedford, Ohio

Acura Battery Replacement in Akron, OH | Motorcars Acura
Your Acura is made up of thousands of parts, and your battery works harder than any of them. Over time, it wears down with use, becoming less effective at running the various electrical systems in your car. Eventually, the battery in your Acura will require replacement. Sometimes, leaving your car sitting for long periods of time will wear down the battery as well, as several systems run in the background even when your Acura is parked and the engine isn’t running. Extreme weather conditions, such as the ones we face in our part of the country, can also negatively affect battery performance and longevity. Here at Motorcars Acura, we carry a full line of factory-approved batteries for your Acura, and we’re staffed with expert technicians who can install your new battery the right way. If you’re noticing issues with your electrical system or your battery simply isn’t what it used to be, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you set up an appointment for a battery replacement.

Why Has My Battery Drained?

The battery in your Acura handles many important vehicle functions. It provides the power to start the car, and also powers features such as the alarm and clock while the car is parked. Because of this, it’s always in use, and wears down gradually while the car is not running. If your car is parked for too long without being started, it can eventually drain the battery to a point where there is not enough power to start your car. In this case, you’ll need a jumpstart or a recharge. It’s a major inconvenience when you need to get somewhere – and it’s bad news for your battery, too.

When the engine of your Acura is running, it powers the electrical system and recharges the battery. Like any rechargeable battery, though, it slowly wears down over time. After many years and many charge and discharge cycles, your battery will eventually require replacement. Sometimes, harsh weather conditions, such as the extreme heat and cold we experience in this region, will negatively impact overall battery life.

How Can I Tell My Battery is Worn Out?

If you’ve read this far, you may be fearing the day that your battery fails once and for all. The good news is that, like most systems on your car, your battery will warn you when it is failing. While you can’t really predict failure when the car sits for a long time unexpectedly or you forget to turn off your lights, there are some ways that your battery will signal that it’s on its last legs. If you notice that your Acura is harder to start, or you notice that your lights dim when you use power accessories like your windows and locks, you should consider replacing your battery soon. On average, a battery should last about five years. It’s worth noting that genuine Acura batteries carry a warranty for 100 months (8 years, 4 months). It’s always best to replace your battery before it fails completely, for the sake of convenience. If you think it’s time to replace your battery, call the service department here at Motorcars Acura, and we’d be happy to make an appointment to bring your vehicle in for service.
