  • Why won't my Astro battery stay charged? A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. The battery may be too old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the cabin light at night. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What do you do with my dead Astro battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  •  How much do DieHard batteries cost for your Chevrolet Astro? You can find affordable Astro batteries by using one of our car battery coupons, when available. Plus, every DieHard battery comes with extra coverage thanks to DieHard Assurance and a free replacement warranty.
  • How often should I replace my car battery? 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 Astro’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Astro’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 Astro, 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 Astro car battery? Regularly inspect the terminals and clean them with a mixture of baking soda and water, a wire brush, and a rag. Disconnect the battery cables before cleaning to help avoid the risk of electrical shock. Always reference and follow the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual prior to disconnecting the battery cables.
