Top K2500 Car Battery Questions

Get answers to common car battery questions, from Firestone Complete Auto Care. If you have a K2500-specific battery question, pay us a visit. Our expert techs have the answers you need.

  • Why doesn’t my K2500 battery stay charged? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. It may be getting old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the dome lights on during the night. Stop by for a free battery test at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • What do you do with my old K2500 battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  • What’s the cost of DieHard batteries for GMC K2500s? You can find affordable K2500 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.
  • What is the average lifespan of a car battery? The typical 12-volt car battery may last three to five years, depending on the type of battery, the driving conditions, and how well the battery is maintained.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my K2500’s battery post? The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around K2500 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 clean corrosion off my K2500 vehicle battery? You can help prevent or get rid of corrosion by regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals. Before cleaning your battery, see your K2500 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.
