Learn More About Your Subaru's Battery Service

We understand that you're constantly on the go. Don't let a dead battery stop you from accomplishing your daily Dallas tasks or Arlington adventures. Make sure that your car's battery is charged, ready to move, and prepared for anything with routine maintenance and replacements as needed.

Why Is Your Subaru's Battery So Important?

Power is essential to your Subaru, and the battery is the heart that provides this power. Not only does it start and run your car or SUV, but it also powers everything else included in your vehicle, such as lights, air conditioning, the radio, and more. Most non-hybrid cars come with a "wet-cell" battery, a plastic cube containing sulfuric acid and lead on the inside and two terminals on the outside. Like all batteries, your car's battery will lose power over time and will need to be replaced.

Signs That Your Car Battery Is Dead

Your car's battery will show you signs that it's about ready to die or already dead. These include:

  1. No Power At All - If you go to start your car and there's no power at all, your battery is dead. You can try to get it working again by jumpstarting the vehicle, but it may not have enough power to be jumped and will need to be replaced.
  2. It Doesn't Start - If there are lights and the engine cranks, but it doesn't start, your battery still has some power, but not enough to get it fully started. A jumpstart may help recharge the battery. If that doesn't work, it may be the starter that's the issue.
  3. It Starts One Day, But Not The Next - If one day your Subaru starts just fine, but the next it doesn't start at all, your battery's terminals may be the problem. They may be loose, corroded, or damaged and need to be replaced. Try to tighten anything that's loose or replace as needed.
  4. It's Hard To Start The First Time - If your car doesn't start first thing in the morning, your battery may be dying. Cold cranking is the term used for starting your car the first time a day. If it's hard to cold crank your vehicle, you'll want to have your battery's charge inspected.
  5. It's Been Jumped A Lot - If your Subaru has been jumped three or more times a week, your battery needs to be changed. Not only is jumping your vehicle annoying and time-consuming, but it also does damage to your alternator and starter.

How Long Does A Car Battery Last?

The average car battery lasts between two to three years, depending on what type of battery it is and how well taken care of it is. The life of a battery is also affected by:

  • Weather
  • Leaving lights on
  • Multiple jumpstarts
  • Corrosion
  • Age
  • Idling
  • And more
