Telltale Signs Your Car Needs Battery Repair

Battery issues are no joke. Your battery is the life of your vehicle. A poorly functioning battery can affect multiple parts of your car. If your battery begins to deteriorate, it is likely that other mechanical issues will shortly follow. For that reason, we recommend scheduling battery testing if you are feeling concerned.

Below is a list of signs to be cautious of. If you experience any of these, we highly recommend you schedule service with us as soon as possible:

  • A dashboard symbol or light regarding your battery pops up (check your owner's manual or give us a call if you aren't sure what a certain symbol means)
  • Your interior lighting is dim or not working
  • Your headlights are dim
  • You are having trouble unlocking or locking your doors
  • Your car is slow to start or doesn't start at all
  • Your infotainment system is black or having issues

When you see us for battery repair, we will make sure to run thorough diagnostics to see what the root cause is. Should you need battery replacement, we have the OEM-approved, high-quality parts you need at our parts center on site.

Frequently Asked Questions

What brand car battery should I get for my Volvo vehicle?

Volvo cars utilize several different kinds of custom-built genuine Volvo batteries, depending on the type of car you have. Their lead batteries rely on PowerFrame technology and use virgin, rather than recycled, lead to regulate performance. With electric vehicles becoming increasingly popular, this manufacturer continues to innovate their batteries to get you further and improve charging speeds.

Why is my car battery draining so fast?

A quickly draining battery might not be a problem with the battery at all; instead, the alternator could be malfunctioning. This car component turns chemical energy into electrical energy, thus helping charge your battery and energize other electrical components within your vehicle.

Alternatively, you might have accidentally left your headlights, cabin lights, or other systems running, which can drain your charge. Leaving your car parked for long periods or only taking it on short drives of 20 minutes or less can also have an adverse effect since the battery gets charged during longer drives. Lastly, age and corrosion can affect your battery, leading to the need for a replacement. Visit our service department so that we can investigate the issue and keep your family safe.

Where is the battery usually located in new Volvo cars?

Modern Volvo vehicles with a start/stop function don't have just one battery - they have two. You can often look for the starter battery in the cargo area, while the support battery could be in a box next to the strut tower or on the left side of the cargo area. However, you should consult your owner's manual or talk to one of our team members to figure out the exact location of your battery systems and how to maintain them.
