What do You do in the Case of a Questionable Battery?

When entering the winter season, it is advisable to have your battery and electrical systems in your car checked for viability. If you find that your battery and system are in good working order and you still are having sluggish starts, then you may consider storing an alternate battery for emergency use.

Storing an alternate battery is simple. However, the storing requires more than just purchasing the battery and setting it aside. First, you must make sure the battery voltage never drops below 12.4V during storage. Testing monthly is a good idea. Another alternative is to set the battery up with a "float" charger that monitors the battery’s voltage level and assists the battery to recharge when the voltage level drops below a predetermined level.

At our Lincoln dealership, we help you to maintain your alternate battery in case of emergencies.
