Your Porsche is a premium performance machine, but like every other automotive, it’s an expensive paperweight without a properly functioning battery. If you’re experiencing power issues with your Porsche, bring it to Fremont Foreign Auto.
We will diagnose your battery to see if it can be charged or needs replacing. If your battery does need replacing, our expert technicians will ensure you receive a new battery with the proper voltage for your Porsche.
Read on to learn more about five signs your Porsche battery needs to be replaced.
- Dashboard lights
When your Porsche battery fails, you’ll likely notice the check engine light blazing on the dashboard. Many vehicles also have a battery-shaped warning light to let you know there’s a problem with the electrical system. If you have warning lights shining on your dashboard, swing by the shop, and we’ll read the error codes for you.
- Electrical problems
Your battery sends power to the many electrical components in your vehicle. A properly functioning battery is necessary to power everything from the starter to the radio. You may notice your heated seats aren’t terribly warm, or your headlights look awfully dim. If you experience electrical problems, make an appointment with Fremont Foreign Auto, and we’ll check it out for you.
- False starts and stalling
The most important duty of your Porsche’s battery is providing the spark necessary to start the engine. Without enough power, your Porsche engine will struggle to turn over and start. A failing battery may be the culprit if your Porsche starts slow or stalls.
- Sulfur odor
No one enjoys the smell of sulfur or rotten eggs, but that’s exactly what you’ll face if your battery breaks down. Leaky and failing batteries can emit a sulfurous odor when they begin to lose acid. The potent smell can seep right through your Porsche’s cabin. If you notice a sulfurous smell, call Fremont Foreign Auto because your battery needs replacing as soon as possible.
- Leaks, corrosion, and swelling
If you suspect issues with your battery, one of the easiest ways to check is to open the hood and look. Even those with little-to-no automotive knowledge should be able to spot a swollen, visibly leaking battery. If you see corrosion or a misshapen battery, make an appointment, and we’ll take care of it.
