Battery Center

Your sedan, SUV or truck batter battery can go bad literally overnight. Sometimes the problem is as simple as replacing an aging or damaged battery. Other times your vehicle may have a problem with the vehicle's electrical charging system. Let the experts at Quick Lane inspect your vehicle's battery before it leaves you stranded. 

Even a new battery can go bad quickly if your truck, SUV or sedan has a faulty electrical charging system. The problem may be your vehicle's alternator, which recharges the battery whenever you drive. A worn out or damaged alternator may not produce enough electricity to replenish the power used during driving--starting the vehicle, operating lights and other equipment such as power windows and smart phones.

Look for the warning signs of battery fatigue: difficulty with vehicle starting, low headlight intensity, power accessories that are sluggish (lift gates or windows that operate slower than normal).
