  • Why won’t my Firebird battery hold a charge? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. 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 complimentary battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What do you do with my dead Firebird battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  •  How much do DieHard batteries cost for your Pontiac Firebird? Pontiac Firebird 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.
  • How often should I replace my 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.
  • What is the white, crusty substance accumulating on my Firebird’s battery post? If you notice white, crusty stuff around the battery terminals of your Firebird, 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 Firebird’s electrical system, potentially leading to poor performance, difficulty starting, and other issues.
  •  How do I clean corrosion off my Firebird vehicle 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.
