Your Volkswagen is a truly fantastic vehicle designed to get you where you need to go in comfort and safety. Of course, to have an exceptional drive, you will need to start your vehicle, and the battery is a vital part of making sure this happens. When your VW needs battery service, come to LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia, serving Westland and Redford Charter Township.
The battery in your VW stores an impressive amount of energy. When you press the Engine Start button or turn the key in the ignition, the battery will send a surge of this electricity to the starter, which starts the engine. Once your vehicle has started, the alternator recharges the battery, allowing it to start the vehicle again when needed.
When your VW battery is newly installed, it can store large amounts of electricity; however, this amount decreases as time goes by. Eventually, your battery will have a hard time holding enough electricity to start your engine. We can test your battery at LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia to see how much charge it has left. We recommend having this service performed regularly, but it’s also a good idea to have your battery tested if you notice that starting your VW is difficult or takes longer than usual.
The terminals are where the battery cables connect to your battery; on the other end, these cables connect to the alternator, allowing it to charge the battery. If the terminals have developed corrosion, we can clean it off at LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia.
Even high-quality batteries will wear out over time. When your battery is near the end of its life, we can replace it for you at LaFontaine Volkswagen of Livonia.
