How Can You Tell If the Battery in Your Subaru has a Good Connection?

Answers to your service questions

The maintenance of your Subaru battery goes beyond simply replacing it when the time comes. For instance, ensuring that the battery always has a good connection to the vehicle is an important part of its maintenance. While you can do a visual inspection of your own to get an idea of how well your battery is connected, we recommend keeping up with scheduled maintenance at a factory-authorized dealer like Carr Subaru. Some of the things you can look for yourself include, for example, whether the battery is secure in the vehicle. While being careful of the electrical connections, simply try to move the battery. If it's loose, then further action is required. You can also visually inspect the electrical connections.

What Else Should You Know About Your Subaru Battery Connection?

When visually inspecting the electrical connections of your Subaru battery, first look for corrosion. If the battery terminals appear to have a chalky growth around them, steps will need to be taken to eliminate and prevent this corrosion going forward. Left unchecked, this corrosion can eventually cause the electrical connection to become intermittent. If the battery itself is not secure in the vehicle, it's likely due to a loose clamp. If you're comfortable and familiar with this, you can attempt to simply tighten the battery clamp, but we always recommend having our certified technicians take care of battery upkeep when your vehicle is in for other regular maintenance like oil changes.
