Battery Test and Replacement in Rockford, IL

Battery Test and Replacement in Rockford, IL

Visit Anderson Toyota!

In every vehicle, there is one vital component that needs to be fully functioning in order for the car to run, and that’s the battery. Car batteries are just like the batteries inside your remote or phone - they wear away over time and eventually need to be replaced. That’s why we at Anderson Toyota have an expert Service Department on hand to assist you if you think you may have battery troubles. Call us or come in today!

Timeline

You might be wondering what the general lifespan is for a battery, and how often you need to get yours checked. As a general rule, we recommend checking your battery every three to five years. This is because around the three year mark, it will start to reduce in functionality. You may have to adjust this timeline slightly to account for your specific vehicle, your driving style, the climate you live in, and other factors. For additional information about your car, make sure to read your owner’s manual. And if you’re still not sure, you’re always welcome to use our Ask A Tech form to get in direct contact with one of our expert technicians.

Warning Signs

Apart from the recommended timeline, there are also specific warnings to look out for that could indicate a problem. The first and most obvious one is if your engine seizes up on the roadway and you require a jumpstart to get it going again. That is a surefire sign that your battery has deteriorated and is no longer working in the way it is supposed to. Other, more subtle indications include if you hear a clicking sound while starting up your car, or if it is taking longer to start up in general. It is also important to note that all of the electronics in your car are connected to your battery, so if you notice your headlights, display screens, or other equipment malfunctioning, it might be a good idea to get an inspection just in case!

Test and Replacement

If you do decide to bring your car in for an inspection, you can either use the Schedule Service Appointment tool under the Service/Parts tab on our website, or just drive up to our service bay! Our team will get to work right away by assessing an electrical test to check in on your system. If they determine that it needs replacing, our in-house Parts Department will be able to dive into their stocked inventory of parts to find the perfect new battery for you. Ask your technician about the Toyota TrueStart™ battery if you really want to step up your game! Then, all that’s left to do is to remove your old one, clean out its terminal, and install the new one! While we work, we invite you to relax in our upscale waiting room, or run some errands and return when we are finished with your vehicle.

Getting your battery replaced is never a fun task, but we make it easy and affordable at Anderson Toyota! Make sure to check out our Service Specials to see how you can save cash on your battery test and replacement in Rockford, IL!

"First purchase at Lexus of Rockford!"

I've always serviced my LS430 here at Lexus of Rockford. The service here has always been great. At the same time while waiting for my car to be serviced, I like to scope out the cars they have in the lot. The cars here are always top notch or at least in very good condition compared to other dealerships. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I'm here. While I wasn't looking to purchase anything brand new yet, I've stumbled upon a used RX450 hybrid. Agent Mike came out right away as I was checking out the RX. Took it for a test drive and immediately fell in love, (not with Mike, with the car lol. But I assure you he is an awesome dude and good looking as well). So we did some paperwork but there were some obstacles in the way and it was also late on a Saturday night. So here comes Ben (the best finance manager in town), assuring my wife and I that he would be working on the paperwork first thing Monday morning. Monday morning comes and we received a text from Mike and Ben that everything was all good and we could come pick up the vehicle. The service here has always been phenomenal and we are digging who they have on the management team. Looking forward to purchasing another vehicle here in the near future. Thank you Lexus of Rockford! You guys rock!

Excellent working with Trent Edgren. It took 4 visits to decide, and his patience and professionalism were outstanding throughout. Spent as much time as we needed to orient ourselves to the electronics in the car when we picked it up.

Frank went above and beyond. One of my major reasons for buying a car from Toyota was Franks willingness to supply the "extra time" to work with my wife and I in selecting a vehicle. Even once the purchase was made, he spent extra time making sure we were checked out and comfortable with the vehicle. Even days after taking delivery he called to answer any questions or concerns. Great job Frank.
