Battery Centre

Your vehicle’s reliance and capability depends on a fully charged battery and a fully functioning electrical charging system. Old, worn out batteries or problems with charging systems can leave you and your family stranded.

Car and truck battery services at Quick Lane at Brunelle Ford include:

• FREE Battery inspection

• Battery replacement

• Battery fluid refilling

• Charging system inspection

• Alternator replacement

• Battery cable cleaning and replacement

 

All cars, trucks and SUVs use an alternator to recharge the battery. A worn out alternator could cause your battery to fail.

 

Look for warning signs that your vehicle battery may be about to die. The signs include difficulty starting your vehicle, low headlight intensity, power accessories that are sluggish (lift gates or windows that operate slower than normal).

 

If you see any of the early warning signs of battery failure, drop by the Quick Lane for a complimentary battery inspection. Our battery experts can help you choose the right battery for your vehicle and driving habits.

 

The Quick Lane Battery Centre recycles all of its automotive batteries. This program helps reduce resources needed to manufacture new batteries while diverting toxic waste from landfills.
