Electrical Care

All batteries are not created equal and price will usually
determine everything from the battery's capacity to the length
of the warranty.

Recommended Maintenance

  • Inspect batteries, cables and belts - every 3 months/ 6,000km
  • Test battery - every spring and fall
  • Replace battery after 3 years if required

Maintenance Tips

When selecting a new battery, choose one that:

  • Meets or exceeds the Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) rating recommended in your vechicle owner's Manual.
  • WIll be properly held down in the battery tray. A proper fit will prevent damaging vibration
  • Offers the largest-possible capacity if you drive in the extreme cold. A battery will loos about 40% of its cranking power in the drop from 27° C to -18° C - even if it's fully charged
  • Has a sufficient Reservce Capacity (RC), which indicates how long accessories can run while leaving enough power to start the engine.

Did you know?

Most people may be suprised to learn that warm temperatures are harder on batteries than cold weather. This extra heat can come from stop-and-go traffic on hot pavement, the draw of your air conditioner or an engine that faces a lot of stress. (Automakers are always looking for ways to get smaller engines to create more power. Heat comes along with that.)

You're simply more likely to notice the problem on cold days, when you can need twice as much voltage to start the engine.

*Recomended service intervals have been developed by NAPA using new vehicle maintenance requirements and/or generally accepted industry standards for "severe service" driving. Always consult your owners' maual for specific recommendations.
