  • 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 may be too old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the lights on overnight. Stop in for a free battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • What happens to my old C1500 battery? We recycle it, taking care of both your car and the Earth.

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? Car battery lifespan varies depending on a few factors, including driving conditions, accessories,  how well it’s maintained, and the type of battery. On average, a car battery lasts about three to five years.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my C1500’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your C1500’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 C1500, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.
  •  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.
