  • Why won’t my Caravan battery hold a charge? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. The battery may be too old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the dome lights on during the night. Stop by for a free battery test at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • What happens to my old Caravan battery? We recycle it, taking care of both your car and the Earth.
  • How much will replacing my Dodge Caravan’s battery cost if I get a DieHard battery? Dodge Caravan 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? 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 Caravan’s battery post? If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Caravan, it's likely corrosion. A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can create a white, powdery substance that builds up over time on the terminals. This buildup can interfere with the electrical connection between the battery and your Caravan’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.
  •  How do I clean corrosion off my Caravan vehicle battery? Regularly inspect the terminals and clean them with a mixture of baking soda and water, a wire brush, and a rag. Disconnect the battery cables before cleaning to help avoid the risk of electrical shock. Always reference and follow the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual prior to disconnecting the battery cables.
