  •  How long do car batteries 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.
  • Why is there white, flaky stuff around my C1500’s battery post? The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around C1500 car battery terminals is called corrosion. It is caused by a chemical reaction between the battery acid and the air, which creates a white, powdery substance that can build up on the terminals over time. Corrosion can interfere with the flow of electricity between the battery post and the car's electrical system, sometimes leading to poor electrical performance, difficulty starting, and even premature battery failure.
  •  How do I clean corrosion off my C1500 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 C1500 owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
