In cars with an internal combustion engine, the battery stores power to get the engine started. Like any ordinary battery, the battery in your car will eventually wear out until it can’t hold a charge. That means it’s time for a new battery installed by the pros at LaFontaine Ford of Lansing. We can test your battery to determine if it needs replacement. Then, we’ll install the right battery for the best performance on your particular Ford vehicle. Learn more about the battery in your car below, then head to our state-of-the-art service center for expert Ford service.
As you drive, the vehicle’s alternator converts power generated by the engine into electricity to recharge the vehicle’s battery. If your car doesn’t start, it might not be caused by a bad battery. The charging system may instead have malfunctioned and failed to recharge the battery. In our service center, we can perform a test that determines if your battery needs to be replaced or if the charging system needs service instead.
Each car requires a particular battery with the correct size and amps to provide the best performance. At LaFontaine Ford of Lansing, our team knows what battery is best for your particular vehicle.
