Is Your Battery Fully Charged?

Car owners understand how important it is to do routine maintenance to make sure their car is operating at the appropriate performance level. One area that is sometimes overlooked is the car battery. Below are some tips on how to test your car battery:

  • Auto Parts Store - If you are unsure of how well your car battery is performing, you can take it to a local auto parts store, like the one here at Bend Honda, and have them test it for you. Most auto parts stores will test batteries for free and if it needs replacing you can purchase one and have them install it.
  • Test it Yourself - If you are unsure of how your car battery is performing, you can use a digital multimeter and test the battery yourself. A battery that is charged properly should read 12.45 volts or higher, and anything lower should be charged.

At Bend Honda, we know how important your car is to you and your family and want to make sure it is operating as intended. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your car battery, come visit our Honda parts store and speak with one of our experts.
