Commonly Asked C10 Battery Questions

Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for answers to all your car battery questions. If you have a C10-specific battery question, pay us a visit. Our technicians have the answers.

  • Why doesn’t my C10 battery stay charged? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. The battery might be old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What happens to my old C10 battery? We’ll recycle your car battery for you!
  • What’s the cost of DieHard batteries for Chevrolet C10s? You can find affordable C10 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 long can I expect my car battery to last? You can usually get three to five years out of your car battery. However, battery type, how well you maintain your battery, and your driving habits can all affect your battery’s lifespan.
  • What is the white, crusty substance accumulating on my C10’s battery post? A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can cause a white, crusty buildup to form on the terminals of your C10 car battery. This buildup — known as corrosion — can impede the flow of electricity and cause a range of issues, from poor performance to premature battery failure.
  •  How do I clean corrosion off my C10 vehicle 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 C10 owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
