Jaguar Car Battery Service in Richfield

2021 Jaguar F-TYPE
As you venture out on the open road, you’ll want to feel confident knowing that you’ll get from point A to point B with ease. If you haven’t had your Jaguar’s battery inspected recently, your journey could prove to be unpredictable. Our Jaguar service center is here to help with all of your Jaguar battery service needs in Richfield.

How to Check Your Jaguar Battery’s Condition & What to Do If It Fails

There are several ways to check your battery, and if it fails to start, give our service center a call. You also have the option of learning how to jump-start a car to see if that does the trick.

  • Make sure that the connections are clean, tight, and corrosion-free
  • If your car fails to start, get your jumper cables and find another driver to help
  • Make sure that both cars are in “park” or “neutral” with the ignitions shut off and the emergency brake is on
  • Remove the caps from each car’s battery and connect the cables
  • Attach one of the red clips to the positive terminal on your battery and attach the other red clip to the positive terminal on the other vehicle’s battery
  • Attach one of the black clips to the negative terminal on the other car’s battery and attach the other black clip to an unpainted, metal surface on your car—making sure that it’s not near the carburetor or the battery
  • Try to start your vehicle

If you find you cannot jumpstart the battery or can do so with some difficulty, it may be time to schedule a service appointment with our service center.
