  • Why won’t my Spectra battery hold a charge? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. The battery may be too old. Or, you may have a habit of leaving your car doors open and the dome lights on during the night. Stop in for a free battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • What do you do with my old Spectra battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  • What’s the cost of DieHard batteries for Kia Spectras? Kia Spectra 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.
  • What is the average lifespan of a 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 Spectra’s battery post? If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Spectra, it's likely corrosion. A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can create a white, powdery substance that builds up over time on the terminals. This buildup can interfere with the electrical connection between the battery and your Spectra’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.
  • How do I clean a corroded Spectra 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.
