Buy the Right Battery for Your Chevrolet C2500

Sadly, your Chevrolet C2500 won't last forever. Neither will its battery. Generally, car batteries last from three to five years. Check your battery regularly and replace it as needed so it doesn’t leave you and your Chevrolet C2500 stranded. Watch for signs that your current battery is getting too old or too weak. A lagging starter, a blinking battery or check engine light, bloated battery case, corrosion-covered posts, or faded headlights may all indicate that your battery is waving goodbye.

Answers to Your C2500 Car Battery Questions

Firestone Complete Auto Care has answers to your top car battery questions. If you have a C2500-specific battery question, visit your nearest store. Our technicians have the answers.

  • Why won’t my C2500 battery hold a charge? 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 dome lights on during the night. Stop in for a free battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What do you do with my old C2500 battery? We’ll recycle your car battery for you!
  • What’s the cost of DieHard batteries for Chevrolet C2500s? You can find affordable C2500 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 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, crusty buildup on my C2500’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 C2500 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 a corroded C2500 battery terminal? You can help prevent or get rid of corrosion by regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals. Before cleaning your battery, see your C2500 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.
