The battery and charging system work together to ensure your Mazda starts strong every time you turn the key (or press the engine start button in a modern Mazda vehicle!). Over time, just like a set of AA batteries in your remote control, the battery in your car will run out of charge and need to be replaced. At the South Bay Mazda service center, our expert technicians can perform a battery health test to determine how much charge is left in your battery. We can also diagnose charging system issues or install a brand-new OEM Mazda battery to keep your vehicle going strong.
It takes a lot of power from your battery to start the engine each time you drive. But, as you drive along, the alternator recharges the battery, so there’s plenty of juice left to start the vehicle over and over again. As the battery ages, it won’t be able to hold a strong charge. Eventually, the battery could leave you stranded, requiring a jump start. To prevent this, get a battery inspection the next time you visit our service department. A battery health test can determine if your battery is good to go for another season or if it’s time to install a new one.
Even if your battery is perfectly good, a faulty alternator, bad starter, wiring short or other issues with the charging system can prevent the engine from starting when you turn the key. A detailed inspection from a trained Mazda technician can pinpoint the source of the problem. If it’s a bad starter or alternator, we can install an OEM replacement part to restore your vehicle’s performance.
If a battery health test determines your battery needs to be replaced, trust our factory-trained experts to install the ideal battery for your vehicle. With genuine OEM batteries from Mazda, you can count on long-lasting, reliable performance from the battery we install.
