Battery Commonly Asked Questions & Replacement near 
St. Peters

1. How soon should Ram batteries be replaced?

The battery on your Ram should be replaced every 3 to 5 years. You should still conduct regular tests to determine if the voltage levels are decreasing, and generally to ensure that your battery is performing at a high level. Excluding high-performance batteries, you can expect voltage of anywhere between 12 to 13 volts. A voltage level higher than 13 may be indicative of a faulty battery.

6. Is it dangerous to give someone a jump start?

It is a possibility that one or both cars can be damaged during a jump start. This is so, as overvoltage can happen during the process - causing damage to electronic components and even affecting headlights that may be on.

7. What causes a car battery to go bad?

Studies have shown that about half of all batteries fail before their expected life expectancy because of a loss of water for normal recharging .Limited maintenance, as well as evaporation from high under-hood heat, along with overcharging are other reasons for battery failure. Positive grid growth and undercharging causing sulfation can also cause a car battery to go bad.

The show room was very nice and clean. My salesman Richard Blue was courteous and friendly and I would go back to him and the dealership again. The only down side is that they were busy and I had to wait 2.5 hours to sign the documents with the business manager. That is the longest I have ever waited although as soon as I was in his office it only took 5 minutes. In hind sight I would never go shopping for a vehicle again on a Saturday afternoon but would go back to Laura Jeep Ram.
