Your car’s battery has the important job of providing the electrical energy required to start your car.
In today’s vehicles, the battery works even when your engine is off, powering electronic components like your vehicle’s computer, digital radio, alarm, clock, and even windows and door locks. Remember to have regular car battery inspections and services performed regularly, to save you both time and money.

Meineke Is Your Car Battery Service, Repair & Replacement Center
Treating your battery right includes regular maintenance as well as replacement before it causes you trouble on the road.

Car Battery Replacement & Services
Some “Do-It-Yourself-ers” can perform these operations with all of the needed tools and equipment. Otherwise, save time and money by visiting your nearest Meineke service center. Have any needed repairs done by a trained and experienced technician without the hassle of performing the fix at home.
Battery diagnostics and maintenance includes:
- Visual and physical inspection for loose connections, dirt and corrosion
- Disconnecting and cleaning cable ends and battery terminals
- Applying a protective coating to keep out moisture and delay corrosion
- Replacement of worn or damaged cable ends
- Tightening cables to battery for optimum connection
- Testing to measure performance in harsh weather conditions
If your battery has adequate capacity but still is losing its charge, further testing is required. This type of test includes determining the electrical draw of the starter and the output of the alternator. They may just be the cause of the problem.
