  • Why doesn’t my K3500 battery stay charged? A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. The battery might be 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 local Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • What do you do with my old K3500 battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.

  • How long is a car battery good for? 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 K3500’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 K3500 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.
  •  How do I clean corrosion off my K3500 vehicle 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 K3500 owner’s manual for instructions on how to do so.
