  • Why doesn’t my Jetta battery stay charged? A battery is in its final hour when it will no longer hold a charge. It may be getting old. Or, you may have been leaving your car doors ajar and the cabin light at night. Stop by for a free battery test at your favorite Firestone Complete Auto Care to learn more about the state of your battery.
  • What happens to my old Jetta battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  • How much will replacing my Volkswagen Jetta’s battery cost if I get a DieHard battery? Volkswagen Jetta 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? You can usually get three to five years out of your car battery. However, battery type, how well you maintain your battery, and your driving habits can all affect your battery’s lifespan.
  • Why is there white, flaky stuff around my Jetta’s battery post? The white, crusty stuff that can accumulate around Jetta 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 Jetta 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.
