Automotive batteries provide electricity to start the engine and power other electronic accessories when the engine is not running, such as the radio, windows, lights, and door locks. Although automotive batteries are vital for vehicle mobilization, they only last for a few years. Routine battery inspections with electrical testing are recommended for detecting poor performance, not at specifications, and replacing old batteries before they fail and immobilize your vehicle.
Whether you are an efficient do-it-yourself mechanic or a customer getting replacement service at the Quick Lane®, we carry the recommended Ford OEM batteries with the guaranteed fit and long-lasting life.
Certified technicians perform battery inspections according to Ford standards beginning with a physical condition assessment. We check for case disfigurement, excessive corrosion, and leaking fluid. We also perform an electrical test using a voltmeter to confirm the reserve capacity and cold-cranking amps are at specifications. Batteries that fail any portion of the inspection or electrical testing are recommended for immediate replacement due to imminent failure probability.
Batteries with minor corrosion can get a cleaning service to restore specifications. A certified technician will clean the battery posts, terminal connections, and cables to remove harmful corrosion. We also apply anti-corrosion pads to the battery terminal to extend battery life.
Brake rotors depreciate with cracking and grooving, where friction is created alongside the brake pads. Brake rotor resurfacing removes the wear and tear to restore disc flatness with the maximum surface area available for creating friction. Brake rotors with excessive disc wear and tear or warping require replacement service to restore specifications.
