Battery Service Tips

Do you remember when you last had your battery serviced? If it's been a while, now is the time to either test it yourself or bring your car into Pep Boys for a free battery test.

If you are a do-it-yourselfer, remember to always wear a pair of rubber gloves and goggles whenever you service your battery. This will protect your hands from acid and protect your eyes. Remember too that all the tools mentioned in this article are available at your local Pep Boys.

Always remove the negative terminal first. This disconnects the battery from the system altogether and reduces the chance of sparks. If the battery terminals do not come off easily, use a battery puller tool to take them off. Do not use a screwdriver to pry the terminals off, because it can break the battery post internal connections!

Take your battery terminal cleaning tool, which should have different extensions for different sized terminals and use it to clean off the terminals and posts. Also use a quality battery cleaning solution, which is available at your local Pep Boys.

If you suspect that you have a problem with your battery or electrical system, or you would like Pep Boys professionals to do a complete Battery Starting and Charging System Service, call your local Pep Boys and set up an appointment for service. If you need a new battery altogether, we offer a great selection of quality batteries at great prices.
