Battery Replacement

OEM Battery Question: Can it be Serviced (Filled)

Hey all, I have a question.

I have a 2012 Sonic LTZ 1.4L with the original battery.

On a wet cell I understand the only major difference between a "serviceable" battery and a "maintenance-free" battery is that the maintenance-free battery has deeper wells so the cells remain covered without the need to service it by adding distilled water. However, under extreme conditions there still is a chance that the level(s) could go down and expose one of the cells shortening the battery life.

I've noticed that there seems to be caps (albeit sealed), on the top but don't know if it's serviceable. I'm afraid to force a screwdriver in the slot to pry it open in case I might break it.

Does or has anybody ever tried to add distilled water to the OEM Delco battery and if so, how is it done or can it be done? :confused:

Thanks! :D

Do I need a new battery

Here are the facts:
I have a 2014 Chevy Sonic. I've had no issues with her until this week.
Monday I gave a neighbor a jump but didn't drive my car all day after.
Tuesday morning I needed a jump myself. Car wouldn't autostart, just kept
clicking instead. Got a jump, drove for half an hour.
Wednesday I ran several errands with no issues.
Today (Thursday) She turned on fine, but the stereo display wouldn't turn on.
But she did play music, even with the display off. I thought it was weird, but
she was running and I had a doctor's appointment to get to. I drove there,
parked, and turned her off and on again and everything was back to normal,
display turned on. Hours later I got off work and it was the same as Tuesday.
But after I stopped trying to turn her on the stereo turned on. Key was in my
hand, not ignition, and the driver's door was open, which should turn music
off. Couldn't turn the music off.
Anyway, I got a jump and she immediately turned back on. I didn't need to
wait a minute or anything. The anti theft light came on this time, but it's off
now. I drove about five minutes, made a twenty minute stop, then couldn't
start her again to get home.
Do I need a new battery? I read it might be related to the keyfob, or the
antitheft system, or the stereo is possessed and is draining the battery. But
my coworker who gave me the jump tonight is on team new battery and says
a bad battery could be causing all that.

What are Battery Terminals?

You’re in luck, because battery terminals are pretty basic. The terminal is actually two parts: the protruding portion of the battery and the terminal connector or clamp that slides over it. The connector is the part that’s replaceable. Both can be cleaned to removed corrosion that causes electrical resistance. Your car has two battery terminals, and if they don’t work then your battery isn’t properly connected to your car. And if your battery isn’t hooked up, then...well, how’d it go when you tried to turn on the TV without any batteries in the remote? Not so hot, huh?

Symptoms of faulty Battery Terminals

Warning light

Let’s start with the good stuff, and by “good stuff” I mean “the reminder that you really, truly need.” Don’t ignore your warning lights. Yes, they may look like emojis you text to your friends, but they’re really important. If your battery or charging light is illuminated, well you might have a terminal issue. And trust me. You won’t be happy if you ignore that one.

Car won’t start

When you go to turn on your car, the battery sends electricity to the starter motor, which in turn cranks the engine enough to get things going. If the battery terminals are preventing battery power from getting to the starter, your car won’t turn on. It may shock you to learn this, but if your car won’t turn on, you can’t really drive it.

Trouble turning on

This is pretty much the same as the “car won’t start” symptom, just with your terminals hanging on to a thread of life. Spoiler: they can’t hold on for long.

Visible corrosion

Your battery is pretty easy to spot when you open the hood. And sometimes the terminals will look like that leftover sandwich you left in the fridge that turned into a moldy, frumpy mess. When the terminals look like that, they have corrosion, and might not do their job.

Diminished electricity in the car cabin

When your engine isn’t running, but you’re still using the electrical components in the cabin, you’re relying on electricity from the battery. So if the lights are dimming like in the beginning of a horror flick, don’t worry: you’re not in for an eerie ending. You just have battery issues, which may be the result of the terminals.

How urgent is a Battery Terminal replacement?

Seeing as the battery is pretty important for making your car actually drivable…you’ll probably want to get those faulty battery terminals replaced if you plan on driving.

What are car batteries and how do they work?

A car battery is an energy storage device that relies on a chemical reaction within the battery to produce electricity. The stored electrical energy is used to initially operate the starter motor, ignition system, and fuel system on your vehicle. Once your car engine is running, the alternator supplies the electricity needed for all vehicle systems and charges the battery to replace the electric energy used when starting a car.

Most electric vehicles have a traction battery which is in addition to the standard 12 volt battery that is used to start the car engine. Traction batteries also convert chemical energy to supply electrical energy but operate at higher voltages and often are monitored by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).


When to replace a car battery?

  • Your car doesn’t start. A new battery has a specified capacity to provide power. This capacity is referred to as the cranking amps rating of the battery. As a battery ages, the actual amps that a battery can supply becomes lower than its original rating Once the cranking amps fall below a critical threshold, it will be difficult or impossible to start your car.
  • Battery or charging system warning light is illuminated. Should a battery or charging system warning light illuminate, a mechanic should perform a few basic tests to determine if a battery replacement is needed.
  • Electrical components don’t work. Once a battery has started to fail, and the voltage produced by the battery drops, then vehicle electrical components can malfunction, such as the security system. If you are experiencing electrical malfunctions, it’s a smart idea to have the battery tested.

How do mechanics replace the battery?

  • A temporary power source might be installed to avoid the possibility of losing radio presets or stored data in the PCM while the battery is out. When the battery is already completely dead, this step is unnecessary.
  • The vehicle’s negative cable is removed from the battery, followed by the positive cable. The battery tie down system is loosened and the old battery removed.
  • Cable ends and wiring are carefully inspected to ensure cleanliness and no corrosion. In some cases, corrosion can be extreme and the cable may need to be replaced or wiring repaired.
  • The new battery is installed and the tie down system is reinstalled. Anti-corrosion compound is applied to the battery terminals. The positive terminal is reconnected followed by the negative terminal.
  • Some vehicles, for example some models of BMW, VW, and Audi, may require PCM programming to input battery parameters. This step, performed using a specialized scan tool, is necessary to maximize battery life and prevent electrical system malfunctions.
  • The car is started and charging system output is measured and compared against the factory OEM specification to ensure that the new battery will properly recharge. Generally, charging output will be in the range of 13.8 to 14.8 volts but the exact specifications vary by make and model.

Is it safe to drive with a battery problem?

Yes, but if you have a weak battery you might be left stranded somewhere if the battery dies completely and you cannot start your car. A faulty battery may also needlessly overload the alternator and could adversely affect the operation of the vehicle’s electrical system, including the vehicle security system and the shift interlock.

When replacing the battery keep in mind:

  • The quality of the electrical connections to the battery posts is important. Connections must be clean, free of corrosion and properly tightened.
  • Batteries store a large amount of energy and if short-circuited a battery could explode and can create intense discharges that can damage your eyesight. Insulated tools should be used to attach cabling to battery terminals. Otherwise, the battery’s positive cable can be shorted to ground or the positive and negative posts can be directly shorted. Batteries can only be safely installed from a positive terminal to positive wiring and from a negative terminal to body ground. If the polarity is reversed damage will likely occur to the vehicle’s electrical system.
  • Generally, a car battery will have a service life of 4 to 7 years. If a load test on a battery reveals a significant reduction in the capacity of the battery to provide power, you should buy a new battery rather than wait for the old battery to fail completely.
  • Batteries should only be disconnected if the engine is off and the alternator is not running. Disconnecting a car battery while the alternator is running can cause a voltage spike that will damage sensitive electronic components in the vehicle, such as the PCM.
