Keeping your battery in proper condition depends on your automotive service and repair provider. Your battery is the source of electrical current needed to start the engine and is a voltage stabilizer for the vehicle’s electrical system. It provides power to the electrical components and accessories even when your car engine isn't running.
At Mission Car Care we test your battery, diagnose the problem and replace or charge it as needed. All you have to do is drive your vehicle in Mission Car Care if you are in the Katy, Texas area and have you battery checked, charged or repaired.
Mission Car Care’s ASE certified mechanics provide immediate professional installation of high-quality, low maintenance batteries. A good battery can last for over five years with proper care at Mission Car Care. However, one can be faced with sudden battery failure depending on usage, maintenance and climate. Battery failure can occur by defective charging systems that cause the battery to be over, or under-charged; or other electrical faults.
Admittedly, a battery change is something which can be accomplished if you posses even a little bit of auto sense with a few tools. Mission Car Care exhorts that you wear gloves and safety glasses whenever working with batteries. Also make sure that you do not touch metal tools across the battery terminals as this can cause sparks. Be sure you are not near any smoke or flames when working to replace or inspect you battery.
If your vehicles’ batteries are located in tough-to-reach areas such as under the front fender, or under the rear seat or the trunk, or you want a pro to handle the task, just drive into Mission Car Care and let us do a sure-shot job. Depending on the model of your car, battery number, size, type and CCA (cold cranking AMPS) and ampere hour ratings, Mission Car Care’s technicians will replace your battery.
A battery change starts with identifying the positive and negative terminals which are clearly marked and loosening the bolt that holds the negative terminal. Remove the negative cable first and then the positive cable. Lift the battery and remove it from the car.
This is followed by an inspection of the battery terminal clamps to see if they need cleaning or replacement. The battery tray needs to be cleaned out next and then the corrosion.
Making sure that the positive and negative terminals are on the correct sides, the battery is then installed by reattaching and tightening the positive cable first and then the negative cable. It is time to start you car to verify that the installation is complete. Mission Car Care recycles the battery we replace.
Mission Car Care suggests that you bring in your car and have your battery and charging system or alternator inspected at least annually to ensure that your vehicle functions smoothly in every situation.
