Free Battery Checks in Grants Pass, Oregon

Sometimes you don’t realize you need a new car battery until yours kicks the bucket!  The Service Department at Jim Sigel Automotive doesn’t want that to be the case for you.  The battery is a key component and it is important that it receives as much attention as the rest of the parts under the hood.  That is why we offer free battery checks right in our service drive.


When Should You Check Your Battery?

  • When you vehicle is hard to start.
  • Before a long road trip.
  • If your battery hasn’t been replaced in three years or more.
  • If there is a buildup of dirt and corrosion on your battery.

Another important time to check your battery is when the seasons change.  Here in Grants Pass we have HOT summers.  Heat can do damage by causing battery fluid to evaporate, leading to damage to the internal structure of the battery.

Additional signs to look for if inspecting your own battery is if your battery is clean. Dirt that accumulates on the top of your battery is a conductor, which can drain battery power. Similarly as corrosion accumulates it becomes an insulator, inhibiting current flow. If you see signs of external battery wear, don't worry, we offer battery cleanings here in our Service Department!
