Everything You Need to Know About Your Battery

Your car’s battery can drain quickly, especially if you do things like leave it on overnight! For these one-time things, usually a jump will solve the problem. If you find yourself having to jumpstart your car often or experiencing a slew of other issues (such as internal lights not working or it taking longer for your car to start), it might be time for a new battery. The experts at North Star Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are happy to help.
