BATTERY BASICS

WHY WON’T MY VEHICLE START?

There are numerous reasons why a vehicle won’t start. If it’s related to the battery, the starter will generally not crank the engine. This is the telltale “click, click, click” when you turn the key or when you push the start button and lasts for about a 10 second period. Also, it will be reflected in the battery voltage and charging information in the Driver Information Center (DIC). This could be the result of an alternator not charging the battery properly, a loose battery or starter cable, or a battery that needs to be replaced.

DO I NEED TO CHARGE MY AUTO BATTERY AFTER I JUMP-START MY VEHICLE?

In most instances, driving will recharge the battery fully in 1-2 hours, unless there is an issue with the vehicle. If your vehicle does not start after driving it, it’s recommended that you take your vehicle to your nearest Certified Service experts to have a diagnosis performed.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN CAUSES OF AUTO BATTERY FAILURE?

Batteries wear out over time, but there are also issues that impact battery failure, for example, unusual “parasitic drains” such as adding accessories but not properly grounding them, leaving accessories plugged in when the vehicle is not in use, short trips, infrequent start-up, and discharged batteries freezing at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

WHAT KIND OF PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE CAN I PERFORM FOR MY AUTO BATTERY?

The best thing that you can do is have your Certified Service technician perform a conductance test on your battery when you get your oil changed. This helps to monitor the status of the battery and helps prevent you from being in a situation where your vehicle won’t start.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY BATTERY?

Vehicle batteries on average last 3-5 years depending on a number of factors including driving habits and climate. In general, warmer climates tend to increase damage due to sulfation. Also, long periods of time spent in a discharged state will shorten the life of a battery.

WHAT IF I’M NOT SURE IT’S MY BATTERY?

Your GMC Certified Service experts can give you a no-charge battery test to determine if your battery needs replacing or if there is an issue with another charging component.
