Illustration of lead acid car battery showing lead dioxide plate, lead plate and sulphuric acidHow Batteries Work

A car battery is a rechargeable lead-acid based battery that supplies electric energy to a vehicle powered by the alternator. It powers the starter, lights, radio and ignition system. Typical full-sized, mid-sized and compact car batteries are made of six galvanic cells that provide 2.1 volts each for a total of 12.6 volts. Heavy duty vehicles may have two batteries that provide 24 volts.

When a lead-acid battery is charged, a chemical reaction takes place in the sulfuric acid between the lead plates and lead dioxide plates that releases electrons to produce electricity. When the battery is discharging the acid of the electrolyte reacts with the plates, changing their surface to lead sulfate. This technology has a life cycle of three to five years as the lead plates deteriorate over time from the constant charging and discharging, breaking down the lead molecules.

North Attleboro Car Battery Replacement

Advanced Auto Repair is a top choice for North Attleboro car battery instillation and battery replacement. Our professional technician check the battery power and the entire starting and charging system to find the exact problem before replacing your car battery.

battery test 1Battery Diagnostic

it takes just minutes to test the battery and charging system, our technicians will check the battery and charging system with a voltmeter. We connect the voltmeters’ positive test lead to the battery positive terminal, and the negative test lead to the battery negative terminal. A fully charged battery should read over 12.6 volts at 80 degrees or 12.588 at 30 degrees. A 12.45 volts or less means the battery is below 75% and needs to be recharged. A 12.24v battery voltage readin is a 50% state of charge, 12.06v is a 25% state of charge charge and 11.89v is a 0% state of charge.

Alternator Diagnostic

After our Advanced Auto Repair technicians charge or jump start the battery if low, the alternator is diagnosed with the same voltmeter while the car is running. A charging system that is operating normally should read 13.8 to 14.3 or more volts at idle. If the charging voltage is less than 13.0 volts, the alternator is not putting out enough voltage to keep the battery charged.

Battery Replacement & Instillation

After a a battery diagnosis, if our Advanced Auto Repair Technicians determine that your vehicle battery isn’t holding charge, we’ll recommend replacing the battery with a new battery. We offer car batteries from leading brands including America’s No. 1 battery brand Interstate Batteries. Before instillation we’ll test the new battery and afterward well test the starting and charging system components for proper charge.

car battery recyclingBattery Recycling

Car batteries are number 1 recycled product in the United States. Advanced Auto Repair will recycle your old battery whether or not you buy a battery from us. Car batteries are plastic filled with lead and acid. If not disposed of appropriately, they cause great harm to the environment. When a car battery is recycled, the acids are neutralized, the lead is separated, and the plastic is reused. Improper battery disposal release toxic chemicals into the soil and water supplies, that is why Advanced Auto Repair cares about battery recycling.

Battery Terminal Cleaning

Dirty and corroded battery terminals significantly reduce electrical contact, making it difficult to charge the battery and start the car. Advanced Auto Repair will clean caked-on corrosion from the terminal posts and cable ends, apply anti-corrosion spray, and install felt corrosion to restore and maintain proper electrical contact. We will also place a protector pad around the posts to help protect against future corrosion.

battery cablesBattery Cable & Terminal Replacement

Battery cables and terminals transfer current from the battery to electrical components. If your car is having difficulty starting, you may have an issue with your battery cables. Advanced Auto Repair technicians inspect the condition of battery cables and terminals, compromised battery cables or terminals can reduce the current traveling to the starter. Replacing a car’s battery cables is an inexpensive fix and can preserve the life of the battery, alternator and starter.
