  • While the engine is running, your battery cushions sensitive onboard electronics from spikes in current or voltage

Battery FAQs

How Often Should You Replace Your Battery?

Every three to five years, it’s advised to make an appointment with a service technician for battery maintenance. And to ensure that your battery is operating at the proper level, you should periodically get it tested for any voltage drop. For clarity, unless you have a high-performance battery, car batteries typically carry between 12 and 13 volts. So a new battery may be required if the voltage is more than 13, which indicates that the battery may be defective.

Who Makes Car Batteries?

The majority of lead-acid 12-volt car batteries sold in the US are produced by:

It’s important to note that each of these manufacturers sell their batteries under numerous brand names to car manufacturers and aftermarket retailers. For example, brands made by Clarios (formerly Johnson Controls) include: Optima, Duralast, Interstate, and AC Delco. East Penn produces NAPA batteries. And both Clarios and Stryten provide batteries for Walmart. If you’re looking for a battery replacement, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our service department and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have

How Long Does an Acura Battery Last?

Acura batteries typically can last around 3-5 years, but this highly depends on things such as weather conditions, driving habits, the type of battery, plus more. To help prolong the lifespan of your battery, you can:

  • Make sure the battery is tightly fastened since vibrations from your car can loosen the connections.
  • Clean any corrosion with an approved cleaning solution and a wire brush.
  • Test your battery frequently
  • Keep your car parked in a parking garage if you can to avoid extreme weather conditions
  • Start your Acura often because if it’s turned off for too long, the battery can die.

Is it Safe to Drive with the Battery Light On?

It can be safe, but is not recommended. If your battery light comes on in your car, you should turn off your accessories to keep the battery from completely draining. Whenever this light comes on, it can mean something is wrong with the alternator and that you’re operating only on battery power. The alternator’s job is to keep your Acura’s battery charged while you’re on the road. If the alternator isn’t operating correctly, the battery may completely discharge, leaving you stranded if the engine is switched off.
