  • How often should I replace my car battery? 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 substance accumulating on my K1500 Suburban’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your K1500 Suburban’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 K1500 Suburban, 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 a corroded K1500 Suburban battery terminal? 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.
