If you can answer yes to one or more of any of the listed occurrences, it may be time to get your battery inspected. A number of things can cause a battery to start failing: extreme temperature fluctuations, accidentally leaving a dome light or headlights on overnight, driving mostly short distances, improperly closed doors or trunk if it’s been longer than 2 ½ years since your last battery replacement, and continual usage of accessories (radio, Bluetooth, illuminated mirrors, etc.) while the engine has been turned off.
Once you notice any of these signs, or if you notice your battery indicator light coming on, Roy Schmidt Honda is here to help! Your Service Advisor can check your service records to make sure all of Honda’s manufacturer guidelines are being met. You can also always find this information in your owner's manual.
