Jaguar San Diego is here to walk you through the simple steps of maintaining your Jaguar car battery like a pro, as well as some of the common problems that drivers notice in Rancho Santa Fe and Del Mar. So pop the hood and let’s get started!

Jaguar Car Battery Maintenance 

Even when dealing with a quality Jaguar car battery, common problems like corrosion and low fluid levels come up from time to time. The good news is that a little maintenance goes a long way, and you can even take care of some tasks from your own garage. See how to maintain your battery below:

    • Visual Inspection: Take a good look at your battery. Are the clamps secure? Broken clamps can’t hold the battery properly, which can lead to damage. Do you notice any debris or grime on the surface of your terminals? This could be corrosion, which we’ll cover later.
  • Battery Check: A standard battery check is an important part of Jaguar car battery maintenance. This helps your technician estimate how much life is left in your battery, so you can get a replacement at the appropriate time.
  • Replacement: Most drivers around Coronado will schedule a battery replacement every three or four years, but that depends on your driving habits. Ask our technicians if you need recommendations. 

Jaguar Car Battery Issues

The good news about your Jaguar car battery: common problems are usually minor. Here are a few examples:

    • Corrosion: Corrosion can develop on the terminals of your battery, but it’s generally easy to remove. Visit our parts department for a cleaning solution. If you think you have a battery leak, you’ll need a replacement instead.
  • Slow Starts: If your car is slow to start, particularly in the colder months, this could indicate that your battery is weakening over time. You might also notice issues with the electrical system or the need for jump starts.
  • Low Battery Fluid: Every automotive battery contains a mixture of water and sulfuric acid. When the fluid levels are too low, your battery can’t perform the chemical reactions necessary to power your car. Check the water level indicator to see if your battery needs a top-off.
