Our Long Island Honda dealership believes routine maintenance is an integral part of vehicle ownership. It's important for North Shore Honda shoppers to keep an eye on the condition of their Honda's components to make sure that everything is working the way that it should.

The battery is especially important to pay attention to. The battery in your Honda supplies the necessary current to the starter motor and the ignition system while cranking to start the engine.  Without a battery that's in good condition, you can end up stuck with a vehicle that won't start.

Make sure that the connections are clean, tight, and corrosion-free.  Unfortunately, batteries don't always give warning signs before they fail, so we suggest replacing any batteries that may be older than three years.

If you need a new car battery or simply a battery check for peace of mind, call (877) 465-5396 to schedule an appointment today!

How to Jump Start a Car

If your car refuses to start, here's what you can do to get it moving:

  • 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 your vehicle starts, you're in good shape but if not, it's time to purchase a new battery.

If it is time for a new battery, the friendly and knowledgable staff at our Long Island Honda service department can handle the installation for you. For more information about the battery in your vehicle or to schedule a service appointment with us, give us a call at (877) 465-5396.
