Mercedes-Benz Battery Service
Mercedes-Benz of Akron Battery Service
The battery in your Mercedes-Benz can often be overlooked — or even forgotten about. It dutifully provides the power needed to start your car or to crank-up the volume on the radio. Today, dozens of computers work together to deliver the world-class driving experience you expect from your Mercedes-Benz, and your battery provides power to all of them. So let’s take a look at a few helpful battery maintenance tips to help you take care of your Mercedes-Benz battery so it can take care of you!
Battery Maintenance Tips
- Check for and clean corrosion around battery terminal posts (+/-). Buildup of corrosion could be a sign of a dying or weakening battery.
- Tighten any loose clamps or cables around battery terminals.
- Remember to turn off headlights, radio, and interior lights when not in use. This reduces excess drain and will extend the life of your battery.
- Check the date code listed on your battery. The code starts with a digit and a letter; 14 would indicate 2014 and it is followed by a number denoting the month A being January, B being February and so on. The older your battery is, the more likely it may need to be replaced.
- Be aware of the climate you live in. Higher temperature climates have a harsher impact on battery life than colder climates do.
Signs and Symptoms of a Dying Battery
- Slow or delayed cranking upon starting your vehicle.
- Check Battery dashboard indicator light or warning displayed.
- Excessive corrosion buildup around battery terminal posts.
- Dimming of interior or exterior lights during operation.
