  • Why doesn’t my SLX battery stay charged? A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. It may be getting old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the dome lights on during the night. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What do you do with my dead SLX battery? We recycle it, taking care of both your car and the Earth.
  • What’s the cost of DieHard batteries for Acura SLXs? Acura SLX batteries can be affordable, especially when there's an available battery coupon. The best part is every DieHard battery comes with a free replacement warranty and extra coverage with DieHard Assurance.
  • How long can I expect my car battery to last? The typical 12-volt car battery may last three to five years, depending on the type of battery, the driving conditions, and how well the battery is maintained.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my SLX’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your SLX’s battery terminals is known as corrosion. Acid leaking from your vehicle’s battery post can have a chemical reaction with the air, leading to an accumulation of the white, powdery substance over time. Corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between your battery and the electrical system in your SLX, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.
  • What do I do about corrosion on my SLX car battery? To help extend the life of your battery, you should routinely inspect and clean the terminals using a baking soda and water mix, wire brush, and rag. Be sure to disconnect the battery cables before cleaning and check your SLX owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
