When Your Toyota Batteries Need Service, Come to Gullo Toyota of Conroe

Whether you drive a Toyota hybrid or not, the batter plays an essential role in the vehicle's functions. Even in a standard, internal-combustion car, the powertrain uses an alternator to connect the engine to the battery, so the two systems work together to power the vehicle's propulsion and electronic devices. Just like the AA batteries in your average electronic device, the batteries of your Toyota will expire eventually, so it is important to know when to get yours tested and replaced. Then service center at Gullo Toyota of Conroe is at your disposal for all your Toyota TrueStart battery needs!

When to Get the Battery Tested

The batteries of most Toyota internal-combustion models will expire every three to five years. However, if you are unsure how much juice your battery has left, it might be ideal to schedule a battery testing appointment. Our service center here in Conroe, TX has all the latest state-of-the-art equipment to determine your battery's current charge level and when it will lose power. You should schedule a battery testing at least twice per year, to ensure you know exactly when it will run low on power. You should also pay special attention to it during extremely hot days in Conroe or The Woodlands as extremely hot or cold temperatures can cause the battery to drain faster.

If you drive a Toyota hybrid or plug-in electric hybrid, you will be happy to know that your battery is capable of lasting for up to 10 years, since the engine system keeps the battery charged as you drive. However, you should still schedule a maintenance appointment for it regularly to ensure the hybrid battery pack lasts as long as possible.

Getting Your Battery Maintained

The better you take care of your battery, the more likely it is to reach a five-year limit, rather than dying out after three years. When you schedule a battery testing with our service center, our team can perform some simple maintenance, including cleaning the battery housing terminal of dust, dirty, and foreign contaminants that might have flown in through the grille. We can also check to ensure the battery, its housing unit, and connection ports are free from corrosion, which can cause the battery to wear down faster and leak acid, potentially damaging other areas of the vehicle.

How to Know When Your Battery Needs Replacement

As your Toyota's TrueStart battery wears down and expires, you will notice the effects in several different ways throughout the vehicle. You should always be on the lookout for the following signs your battery needs replacement:

  • "Battery" dashboard warning light on
  • Reduced power when cold cranking/engine misfires
  • Loss of power, both intermittent and permanent
  • Weakened headlight strength
  • Foreign smells: as an unmaintained battery expires, it can leak acid and become warped, resulting in a sulfuric, "rotten egg"-like odor coming from under the hood
