  • Why won't my C1500 battery stay charged? A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. The battery might be old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the dome lights on during the night. Stop in for a free battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What do you do with my dead C1500 battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  •  How much do DieHard batteries cost for your Chevrolet C1500? Chevrolet C1500 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 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.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my C1500’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 C1500 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 C1500 vehicle battery? You can help prevent or get rid of corrosion by regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals. Before cleaning your battery, see your C1500 owner's manual to learn how to disconnect the battery cables. After disconnecting the cables, use a mixture of water and baking soda, a wire brush, and a rag to carefully clean the terminals.
