Battery Test and Inspection near Lancaster, PA

If you are the driver of a new or used vehicle, then you’ll need to eventually get a new battery. To make sure it lasts its full lifespan, get it tested and inspected regularly at Jack Giambalvo Buick GMC. We have an esteemed Service Center for you to take advantage of.

Warning Signs

It is imperative that you are able to tell when something is amiss with your car’s battery. This component under the hood shouldn’t have an excessive amount of corrosion or rust on the terminals. If you notice white powder collecting on it, come to our dealership to see if it needs maintenance. Moreover, if your car’s lights tend to flicker while they’re on, the battery might be having trouble sustaining its charge. While this can indicate a problem, it might simply need to be charged. However, if it is not able to turn on the engine on a cold Lancaster winter morning, then you could do well to replace it. We can also help set you up with a roadside assistance plan when you purchase your vehicle or get service at our dealership.


When you visit Jack Giambalvo Buick GMC for a battery inspection, the first thing we’ll do is examine the physical condition of your component. Corrosion will be cleaned off and rust will be evaluated. If there are bulges in the sidewalls of the power cell, it could indicate trouble. Additionally, our team members will check out the cables and wires that connect the battery to the rest of the vehicle. If something is loose or broken, it may be the cause of many problems. If nothing appears to be wrong, yet you’re still experiencing issues, we may examine other electrical components to make sure that nothing is sapping power during your trips down Old Philadelphia Pike. 


In addition to the aforementioned inspection, we will also use specialized instruments to measure the charge of your car’s battery. We’ll send energy to the component and measure how well it is able to retain that power. If its electricity drains while doing so, it is likely time for a new unit. This isn’t always the case, meaning it might just need to be recharged. We’ll take care of this for you so that you can embark on your journey to Chester Road as soon as you please. We will then let you know how much longer it will last. New parts tend to take three to five years to reach the end of this lifespan, so contact us if you’re nearing that threshold.
