Those can deteriorate over time as the material they are made of gets old and less flexible. A technician can replace those parts. Modern vehicles contain something called a ... read more

As this process continues over a few years, the alternator has to work harder to supplement the battery charge. Over time, enough of the battery is damaged that it can no longer hold a charge and it needs to be replaced. This also speeds up wear on the alternator.Your Honest-1 Auto Care service advisor can help you determine the right vehicle replacement battery for the way you drive around Daytona Beach, as well as the FL climate and durability needs.Contact Honest-1 Auto Care for information on battery replacement.Give us a call.
