As your trusted Florida Jeep® dealers, we can tell you that your battery is one of the most important aspects of your vehicle. While Northerners often experience dead batteries due to the frigid cold, we Floridians can experience a dead battery from extreme heat.

One of the best ways to ensure your battery is up to par is to test your battery on a regular basis. If your battery is three years-old or older, it’s even more important for you to get it tested. Our service technicians are able to perform a battery test in no time, so be sure to schedule an appointment in our Jeep service center near Orlando, FL.

Believe it or not, you can give your battery some of the attention it needs simply by driving your automobile regularly. Whether you drive a 2018 Jeep Wrangler or an older model, driving a mile or more every day is a great way to keep your vehicle’s battery charged up. If driving daily isn’t a viable option, you should consider using a charger or maintainer to keep your battery charged.

Simply inspecting your battery can help ensure it stays properly functioning. For instance, if corrosion is present on your battery’s terminals, it may fail to provide power to your car even if it’s fully charged. All you need to do is clean it off and then wipe down your battery with a rag. You’ll also want to check for any loose or broken terminals, bulges or bumps in the case, or any cracks.
