If you’ve ever tried to start a car with a dead battery, you know how it feels to be stuck on the road or at home, waiting for road service to arrive. Don’t wait until your battery dies to take care of your battery. Bring your Chevy to Con Paulos Chevrolet for battery replacement service near Twin Falls. We’ll check your battery and replace it with a new one, if needed.
Your Chevrolet’s battery supplies the electricity necessary to start the engine. Initially, the battery also sends power to the lights, the radio and other accessories. Once the engine starts, the alternator takes over and supplies the car’s electricity.
All batteries have a limited lifespan. A weak or dead battery is no longer able to generate the electricity needed to start the vehicle and must be replaced. If you live in the Twin Falls area and your car won’t start, or it has trouble starting, bring it to the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center in Jerome for battery testing and replacement near Twin Falls. We’ll inspect the battery and install a new one.
Most car batteries have a lifespan of about three to five years. Replacing the battery every three years will help ensure it doesn’t die while you’re away from home. It’s a good idea to identify the signs of a dying battery, especially if you live in a part of the country with very hot summers or very cold winters. Some indications that it may be time to replace the battery include:
An engine that’s slow to start
The car’s battery indicator light comes on
Leaking battery fluid
A battery case that looks swollen or damaged

The weather will affect the Chevy’s battery life. When it gets very hot, the water inside the battery can evaporate. This will result in decreased performance, and the car may be difficult to start. When the water evaporates, there’s a greater chance the battery will begin to corrode. Corrosion is the primary cause of leaking and dead car batteries.
Cold weather will also impact battery life. In cold weather, the battery must work harder to create the energy needed to start the car. Cold weather also causes the engine oil to thicken, which places an even greater burden on the battery.
It can get very hot in the summer in the Twin Falls area, so you may need to replace your car’s battery more often than once every three years. At the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Department, you’ll find several service specials on our website. Look for discounts and rebates on battery inspection and replacement. During a battery inspection, we’ll check for corrosion and leaks, inspect the battery case and cables, and make sure the battery is fully charged. Just print the coupon and present it at the time of service.
