Battery Terminal Replacement

The Importance of Having Your Battery Terminal Replaced

Do you know all the parts to your car battery? Likely not. And, you shouldn’t have to. However, when your car battery dies or is in need of a charge or replacement, it can be helpful to know a couple of key things. One of the more important things is your battery terminal.

Sure, we all have a general knowledge of how to attach the cables to charge our battery. But what happens when that doesn’t work, but our battery is in good condition? The health of your battery terminals is a key component to making sure that your battery is not only healthy but able to be charged when needed.

What are the battery terminals?

Simply put, they are the positive and negative charges that you clamp the cables to when you need to charge your battery.

Signs your terminals need to be replaced

  • Green and/or white corrosion around the terminals
  • Battery light on dashboard won’t turn off, even after charging
  • Vehicle fails to crank

To get your battery to crank, there has to be electricity coming from the battery to the spark plugs. When your battery terminals become too corroded, they become loose from the battery and don’t allow your vehicle to crank.

How Often Should You Inspect and/or Service Your Battery

We say regularly. This may look different to everyone. There is not a set time, like there is for oil changes and tire rotations, for your battery to be cleaned off. We recommend checking at least monthly.
