Hyundai Battery Replacement in Halifax, Nova Scotia

How long do Hyundai batteries last?

The lifespan of a battery can vary depending on weather conditions, type of battery, your driving habits, and more. Hyundai batteries generally last anywhere between 3-5 years. However there are ways to prolong the life of your battery:

  • If possible keep your vehicle away from extreme changes in temperature
  • Test your battery frequently
  • If your vehicle is not being driven make sure to start it frequently
  • Keep the battery posts and vehicle terminals clean
  • Make sure your battery is securely fastened in the engine bay.

How do you change a battery in a Hyundai?

In some instances, changing a battery in your Hyundai can be tricky. The space in the engine bay may be reduced in newer vehicles; this space is limited so that manufacturers can improve safety and performance. Because of this, batteries may be difficult to access, and in some cases, batteries are under the floorboard or even in the trunk, though this is very rare. Below we will outline the generic steps to replace your batter:

  • Your engine should be shut off
  • Utilize a wrench to break the bolts loose that holds the negative cable on the battery post
  • Remove the cable carefully by lightly twisting and pulling it
  • Repeat the same steps for the positive terminal (red)
  • Locate the clamp mechanism that holds down the battery, usually two bolts
  • Use a wrench to remove the bolts that are holding it on
  • Now you should be able to remove the battery safely
  • Grab your new battery and repeat the steps in reverse
