Car Battery Testing and Replacement Service
Callaway's Automotive (817) 485-8189 | North Richland Hills Auto Repair Service
Texas heat, and that all by itself, is especially hard on your car battery. We can recommend the best car battery for your vehicle, because we've lived here our entire life and "seen it all" (that along with giving consideration to your vehicle manufacturer's recommendation of the best car battery for your make and model).
Then you factor in all the components under the hood generating heat, as well just basking that battery in added summer heat, and it all adds up to your vehicle's battery absorbing a lot of the punishment of heat that our region offers.
Expected battery life
As for car battery life, on average you can expect to get four (4) years out of a good battery and two (2) years out of a cheap battery.
typical dead battery symptom
Have you ever pulled up to your destination; and then when you go to start it up after awhile all you get is "click click click" in rapid succession? Most of the time that means your car battery is dead, and often at the end of its life. (The recharging system also should be evaluated if battery life is not in question.)
free battery test
We will test and recharge your battery for free.
If as a result of our test, we find that your auto or truck battery is at the end of its life, we carry and offer for sale top of the line AC Delco batteries, and in most cases we will have your vehicle's battery in stock.
extreme weather effects on batteries
