  • Why won’t my Silhouette battery hold a charge? A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. The battery might be old.

  • How often should I replace my car battery? Car battery lifespan varies depending on a few factors, including driving conditions, accessories,  how well it’s maintained, and the type of battery. On average, a car battery lasts about three to five years.
  • Why is there white, crusty buildup on my Silhouette’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Silhouette’s battery terminals is known as corrosion. Acid leaking from your vehicle’s battery post can have a chemical reaction with the air, leading to an accumulation of the white, powdery substance over time. Corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between your battery and the electrical system in your Silhouette, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.
  • How do I clean a corroded Silhouette battery terminal? Regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals will help keep your Silhouette’s electrical system running smoothly. Before cleaning, reference your owner’s manual for instructions on how to disconnect the battery cables. Once the cables have been disconnected, gently clean the terminals with a mixture of water and baking soda, a wire brush, and a rag.
