  • Why won't my K1500 battery stay charged? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. It may be getting old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the cabin light at night. Stop in for a free battery check at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What do you do with my old K1500 battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.

  •  How long do car batteries 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.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my K1500’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 K1500 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.
  • What do I do about corrosion on my K1500 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 K1500 owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
