  • Why won’t my C280 battery hold a charge? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. The battery might be old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a free battery test at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What do you do with my dead C280 battery? We’ll recycle your car battery for you!
  •  How much do DieHard batteries cost for your Mercedes-Benz C280? You can find affordable C280 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.
  • How long can I expect my car battery to last? 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.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my C280’s battery post? The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around C280 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.
  • What do I do about corrosion on my C280 car battery? 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.
