Porsche Battery Replacement In Ontario
If your Porsche’s car battery needs to be replaced, visit the Porsche Ontario service center or parts department today.
It’s every driver’s worst nightmare–you go to start up your vehicle only to hear silence or a clicking sound when you turn the proverbial key. There could be several issues at play, but if you suspect your car battery is at fault, the Porsche Ontario service and parts center is here to help.
When To Replace Your Porsche Car Battery?
The average lifespan of a car battery is around three years, and while your Porsche vehicle is engineered with high-quality parts, many factors like old age, extreme temperatures, and corrosion can negatively impact your car battery’s life. Ensure you’re never stuck trying to turn over your vehicle by taking note of the following signs that may indicate your battery needs attention:
- Slow Engine Crank: Does the engine seem sluggish when attempting to start your Porsche? This may be a sign your battery is failing! Be sure to schedule service for your Porsche vehicle as soon as possible.
- Flicking or Dim Lights: Car batteries are often drained by leaving a light on or accessory plugged in overnight. Stay vigilant for flicking interior lights, dim headlights, or even a check engine light on your vehicle’s dashboard so you can avoid the dreaded feeling of being left stranded somewhere.
- Pungent Odors: You should never smell strong or foul odors from your vehicle. If you do notice a rotten egg smell it could be a battery leak, which can cause corrosion. Get your battery inspected immediately!
How to Check Your Porsche’s Battery Condition & What to do if the Battery Fails:
- Make sure there is no corrosion and that the connections are clean and tight.
- If you can’t start your car, get your jumper cables and seek the help of another driver.
- Before starting, make sure that both cars are in “park” or “neutral” with the ignition off and the emergency brake on.
- Remove both car’s battery caps and connect the cables.
- Attach each of the red clips to the positive terminals on both vehicles.
- Attach one of the black clips to the negative terminal on the other car’s battery and be sure to attach the other black clip to your vehicle on an unpainted, metal surface. Make sure that it isn’t near the carburetor or the battery.
- Once all of these steps are completed try to start your vehicle.
If your Porsche still won’t start after following these steps, it means it’s time to replace your battery.
How Often Does My Porsche Battery Need to Be Replaced?
In order to avoid potential issues you should change your Porsche battery every three to five years as long as there aren’t any other signs of a failing battery.
When it’s time to have your battery replaced, our parts center in Ontario has factory-recommended Porsche batteries in stock for your specific model.
6 Signs Your Porsche Battery Needs Replacing:
- Dim headlights: When the battery is weak it will not supply enough current to the electrical components of your vehicle. The easiest way to notice this is through your headlights.
- Little to no engine crank when turning the key: If your engine struggles to ignite, chances are your battery is not providing enough current.
- Backfiring: Without the necessary current, your spark plugs might fail to ignite on the correct stroke, resulting in residual fuel buildup in your engine cylinders. Once ignited excessive force may be released causing a backfire and potential engine damage.
- Dashboard Warning: A “check engine” light can represent multiple problems with your vehicle, including a battery in need of replacement.
- Swollen Battery: The battery builds up hydrogen gas when overcharged, causing expansion. Do not try to remove the battery or drive your vehicle. Instead call a tow to Porsche Ontario.
- Rotten Egg Smell: Cracked batteries can leak sulfuric acid on the inside, evoking a pungent rotten egg smell.
How to Jump Start a Car
Keep a a good pair of jumper cables in the trunk of your Porsche at all times. You’ll never know if you or a fellow driver might need them.
- Find a vehicle to help you with the jump
- Make sure that both cars are in “park” or “neutral” with their ignitions shut off and emergency brakes on
- Remove the caps from each vehicle’s battery and connect the cables
- Attach one of the red clips to the positive terminal on your battery and attach the other red clip to the positive terminal on the other vehicle’s battery
- Attach one of the black clips to the negative terminal on the other car’s battery and attach the other black clip to an unpainted, metal surface on your car – make sure that it isn’t near the carburetor or the battery
- Try starting your vehicle
If the jump start doesn’t work, then it is time for a new Porsche battery from Porsche Ontario today.
