  •  How much do DieHard batteries cost for your Ford Aerostar? Ford Aerostar 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 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 Aerostar’s battery post? The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around Aerostar 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 Aerostar car 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 Aerostar owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
