Top Golf Car Battery Questions

Get answers to common car battery questions, from Firestone Complete Auto Care. If you have battery questions that are Volkswagen Golf-specific, visit your nearest store. Our technicians have the answers.

  • Why won't my Golf battery stay charged? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. The battery might be old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a complimentary battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What do you do with my dead Golf battery? We recycle it, taking care of both your car and the Earth.

  •  How long do car batteries last? 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, flaky stuff around my Golf’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 Golf 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.
  • What do I do about corrosion on my Golf 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.
