KNOW WHEN TO INSPECT AND REPLACE YOUR BRAKES
To keep braking performance at its optimum level, an inspection every six months is recommended. Because brake pads and shoes are hidden behind the wheels, it is difficult to see how much product life is remaining. See your authorized Mazda Dealer for a brake inspection and ask about our Lifetime Limited Warranty on Genuine Mazda and Value Products by Mazda Brake Pads and Shoes.

- Dimming headlights
- More frequent need for engine revving or jumpstarts

- Unusual power fluctuations
Knowing how to test a car battery will be helpful in learning how much life your battery has left in it.
HOW TO TEST A CAR BATTERY
It is important for Temecula Valley and Menifee Valley drivers to know how to test a car battery. This test can be done either here at our Mazda service center or at home in Lake Elsinore.
The Headlight Test:
- Turn on the engine, keep the car in park, and turn the headlights on.
- Rev the engine, and see if the headlight brightness changes.
- If the headlights get brighter, that can indicate the battery is weak and in need of service.
Using a Digital Multimeter:
- Set the voltmeter to 20 DC volts.
- Under the hood, touch the negative terminal (black) with the negative meter probe (also black).
- Touch the positive terminal (red) with the positive meter probe (also red)
- Have someone else turn on the headlights and check the voltmeter reading.
- At 80℉, 12.5 volts or higher indicates a fully charged battery; 12.3 volts indicates a 75% charge; 11.8 volts or less indicates a 25% or less charge.
WHAT CAUSES CAR BATTERY DETERIORATION?
There are several factors that can impact battery deterioration, including:
- Prolonged heat in warm climates
- Vibrations from rough road conditions
For the best idea of how long your car battery should last with proper care, consult your owner’s manual or maintenance schedule.
