  • Why won't my Dakota battery stay charged? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. The battery might be old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What happens to my old Dakota battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  • How much will replacing my Dodge Dakota’s battery cost if I get a DieHard battery? You can find affordable Dakota 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 can I expect my car battery to last? A car battery normally lasts three to five years, but this number can vary based on battery type, your driving habits, and battery maintenance.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Dakota’s battery post? The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around Dakota 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 remove corrosion from my Dakota car battery? You can help prevent or get rid of corrosion by regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals. Before cleaning your battery, see your Dakota 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.
