Caring For Your Nissan's Battery
Without a working battery, you won’t be going anywhere in your car. You might be surprised to know that your Nissan’s battery needs regular service and replacing, usually every three to five years. At Gulfport Nissan, we can help you come up with a maintenance plan that works for your vehicle and the type of driving you do.
AVOID PARKING IN EXTREME TEMPERATURES
If possible, park in a garage in the winter and a cool area in the summer. This will keep your battery from rusting or wearing down prematurely. Driving in extreme temperatures is also rough on your battery so if you can avoid driving when the weather is extremely hot or extremely cold, your battery may last longer.
KEEP YOUR BATTERY CLEAN
A dirty battery will not charge as well. Be sure to periodically clean your cables and other battery parts to ensure it’s working efficiently. The service technicians at Gulfport Nissan can help show you how or do it for you. Schedule your maintenance by calling (228) 864-6411.
PAY ATTENTION TO WARNING SIGNS
If you’re having to jumpstart your car often, obviously you should have your battery checked out. But, a poorly working battery can show other signs too. If the electrical components of your car aren’t working properly, such as dim interior lights, you want to bring your car in to the Nissan battery experts at Gulfport Nissan to get it checked out.
