Getting Your Battery Replaced at Volkswagen of Salem

If your vehicle suddenly doesn’t start one morning, you usually assume that the battery is dead. And while that’s the most common cause of this problem, it’s hard to be sure without a professional diagnosis. Get a battery health test at Volkswagen of Salem and replace a bad battery for ideal starting power each and every morning. Or, we can help identify the real reason your car won’t start if the battery passes its health test.

How Do I Know I Need My Battery Replaced?

If your battery can no longer hold a charge, there won’t be enough juice left in the battery to start the engine. Before it gets that bad, you may also see your headlights and dashboard lights flickering or running dim. You may have difficulty with other electronic features such as key fobs. That indicates that your battery is struggling to hold a charge


What Is a Battery Health Test?

A battery health test can determine if your battery simply needs to be charged or if the battery is too old and worn out to hold a charge and needs replacement. The alternator converts engine power into electricity to recharge your battery as you drive along. The alternator ensures you’ve always got power in the battery to start your car each day. However, as batteries age, they can no longer hold a charge over time, leading to electrical problems. In some cases, instead of the battery, the alternator may need to be replaced if the battery health test determines that the battery can still hold a charge. A bad alternator will need replacement to keep the vehicle’s battery charged as you drive.


What Kind of Battery Do I Need For My Vehicle?

Check the owner’s manual that came with your vehicle to find the amperage and dimensions of the battery compatible with your vehicle. We recommend genuine OEM Volkswagen batteries identical to the ones installed in your vehicle from the factory for the best performance. At Volkswagen of Salem, we use genuine OEM consumables like batteries, headlight bulbs, spark plugs, and more, so they last longer and fit precisely on your vehicle. Third-party components may not always fit properly or perform as you expect compared to OEM.
