batteries come with a manufacturer warranty.

Like all battery manufacturers, the warranties cover manufacturer defects only. They will not cover damage resulting from improper installation or failure to properly maintain your batteries. Some of the most common forms of this are broken posts from over-torquing, melted posts from loose connections, failure to maintain proper water levels, freezing resulting from failure to charge batteries in the winter and cause damage.

In the event that you have a warranty claim, contact us and we will make arrangements to have the battery inspected and replaced at the nearest distribution center.

How A Car Battery Works

Even though your car battery is fairly small in comparison to other components under the hood, it is, of course, essential. Your vehicle’s battery does a lot more than just provide the electricity needed to power all of the electrical components throughout the car, however—the battery is also a critical element of the vehicle’s starting and charging systems. A car battery performs two essential functions:

  • Helping to start the car: The battery quickly converts chemical energy, which is stored inside the battery, into the electrical energy that your starter needs to start the vehicle.
  • Keeps the engine running: After helping to start the car, your car battery also provides a steady supply of electrical voltage to keep the engine running as you drive.

Simply put, when you go to start your vehicle, a cycle is initiated that helps power your vehicle and keep it running. This cycle all starts with your car battery.

To break it down further, your vehicle’s starter receives a jolt of electrical energy and then converts this into the mechanical energy needed to crank the engine. Then, the rotation of the engine powers the alternator, which helps to recharge your battery by pushing this mechanical energy back into the battery where it’s stored as chemical energy. The chemical energy is then converted back into electrical energy again to continue to power the starter and your vehicle’s various accessories. This cycle continues as the car is running.

That’s why including battery checks in your vehicle’s preventative car maintenance is so important. Because it impacts so many other systems, it is critical to regularly check your battery and its connections. The expert mechanics at Driver’s Edge will help ensure you have the best car battery for your vehicle and that it remains in optimal condition to keep you on the road.

Important Battery Replacement Facts

Most car batteries last about three to six years. Of course, like many parts on your vehicle, the life of your battery depends on how you treat it. There are some important things to know about batteries to avoid draining them of energy prematurely and incurring a car battery cost before you need to.

Using Electronic Components Without The Engine Running

When the engine is running, the alternator works to recharge the battery as it provides electrical energy. So when the engine is off, there is nothing pushing energy back into your battery. This translates into using electronic components for too long without the engine running, one of the quickest ways to a dead battery.

To avoid draining the car battery, make sure that your headlights are turned off and no interior lights are left on when you exit the vehicle. Leaving cell phone chargers, GPS or other electronics plugged in when the car is off can also drain the battery.

The Affect Weather Can Have On A Car Battery

Both hot and cold weather can have a significant impact on the performance and life of a battery. This is because most car batteries consist of an iron-based electrolyte solution that holds the charge and is affected by extreme temperatures.

When it is hot outside, the battery solution can sometimes start to evaporate which limits its ability to hold a charge. This results in hesitation when starting the car. Another indicator that this might be happening to your vehicle’s battery is if you notice a rotten egg smell. This is from the sulfur in the electrolyte solution. If you are noticing this happening, it may be time for a car battery replacement.

Alternatively, cold temperatures also affect your car battery. When it is cold out, the battery’s electrolyte solution can’t transfer full power as efficiently. This is why it can sometimes be hard to start your vehicle in the winter if it’s been sitting outside.

The best solution to keep your battery protected and lasting longer during extreme temperatures is to keep it garaged if you can.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is a bad battery the only reason my car won’t start?

If your vehicle won’t start, more often than not it’s because of your battery not having a charge, but other circumstances can cause similar starting issues. These include:

  • Corrosion on the battery terminals: Sometimes white, chalky corrosion can build up on each of the terminals located on the top of your battery. When this happens, it can prevent the proper flow of electricity through the battery cable attached to them. Luckily, this can easily be cleaned off with a wire brush or steel wool.
  • Faulty starter: If your vehicle’s starter has gone bad, it cannot convert the electrical energy from the battery into mechanical energy to start the engine. In this case, you’ll often hear the same kind of clicking noise when you try to start the car as you would with a dead battery.
  • Bad alternator: If your alternator fails, it won’t recharge your battery when the engine is on. In this situation, after you’ve been driving for a while and then turn your car off, then go to start it again later, your car won’t start. A bad alternator can also, in some cases, cause a parasitic drain on your battery which would also result in the car not starting.
  • Clogged or worn fuel/ignition system components: Clogged fuel injectors or worn spark plugs can cause vehicle starting problems. In these instances, the car cannot get the necessary fuel or ignition levels to be able to start and run the engine.

If you’re having trouble starting your vehicle you may need a new car battery installation done or it could be another issue. Either way, the ASE-certified mechanics at any one of our 19 Driver’s Edge locations can help diagnose the problem and get you back on the road.

Q: How do I know which car battery replacement I should buy?

Different types of vehicles, driving styles, and uses can call for different types of batteries. You want to follow your vehicle’s manufacturer-recommended guidelines when it comes to what the best car battery for your vehicle would be.

The first place to look to answer this question is in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. You can also talk to the mechanics at your nearest Driver’s Edge location. We will be glad to help you determine the OE (original equipment) manufacturer’s recommendation for your vehicle.

Q: How can I tell how old my battery is?

The first place to look is on the top of your battery’s case. You’ll see a four-digit code stamped on the cover or printed on a sticker. The first two characters of this code indicate when the battery was shipped from the factory to the distributor. The letter at the beginning refers to the month — A for January, B for February, etc. The number that follows refers to the year. For example, 9 for 2009 and 1 for 2011.

Keep in mind that car batteries usually last three to six years. If you start to notice your battery case being swollen, a sulfuric rotten egg smell coming from the battery, or hesitation on starting, it might be time to start looking at getting a car battery replacement done.

How to read the Acdelco battery date code

The ACDelco battery is hugely prominent for its uses in different sectors like commercial, automotive, transport, marine, etc. They are also very popular for their after-sales services like servicing batteries or giving warranties. The batteries are not so many vulnerable products as they don’t have a strong structure either.

They can get damaged and explode even after you take care of them perfectly. In that case, you need to claim the battery’s warranty. However, every battery has a selected warranty period, and this warranty period starts from the battery’s manufacturing time. So if you want to check whether your battery has a warranty period or not, you should know “how to read the ACDelco battery date code.”

Check the top or bottom surface area of the battery. You will see a 5-digit code. The first letter is your battery series type. Then you will see 3 numbers that signify the battery manufacturing date. The last letter says something about its manufacturing plant.

What do these codes mean?

These codes provide information about the battery, like what series of batteries they are, their manufacturing date, etc. You will need this information to check if your battery has a sufficient warranty period or not. There can be difficult letters like P, A, H, K, and M to start the code. These letters provide their series name.

If the date code on your battery begins with P, it is a professional series battery. However, if your battery begins with the letter S, it is a 60 series or advantage battery.

Other letters, such as H or K, may appear there. The letter H stands for “heavy-duty,” while the letter K stands for “marine” or “voyage.”

Then come the 3 numerical numbers. The first two figures of the number provide information about which month they were created. You will get to know the creation year of the battery by the last number. After that, a letter is attached to complete the date code. This letter is the coded name of the plant where the battery was created.

How to read the Acdelco battery date code

The process of reading the battery date code is described below.

Where to find the battery date code

The serial number of the battery provides information about manufacturing traceability and date codes. All this data provides information about the time of the battery’s manufacturing. So you should check the surface area of the batteries to get information about the date code.

Usually, these serial numbers are located on the top side or the back side of the battery. These serial numbers contain two types of letters. The first two digits are letters from the alphabet, whereas the last eight digits are numerical values.

The date code provides information about its manufacturing months and years. These codes are leveled with a letter and a number. It is attached to the back side of the battery. So you need to check it to get it.

Checking the battery date code

By checking the date code, you will get information about if your battery has a warranty period or not or its model number. Most of the time, these codes start with P or S. The P, and S indicates the model of the battery.

Starting with P means your battery is a professional series battery. S means it is an advantage or 60 series battery.

However, you may see other letters such as H or K there. The first H means a heavy-duty battery, while the second K means a marine or voyage battery.

Code reading process

The date codes come with the serial number of the battery. You need to check the serial number first to get it. Then check the last three digits of that number. Here, the number is PO49R, and it is red in color. (Image in the bellow)

It means your battery is a professional series battery. The three numbers mean its production month and year. 04 means it was built in April, and 9 means 2019. The R in the last indicates it is from plant “R.”

How to claim an Acdelco battery warranty

The process of claiming an Acdelco battery warranty is described below.

Check if you can claim the battery warranty or not

Usually, ACDelco will provide a warranty for all types of problems with your battery. This warranty process will not cost you any money. They will provide you with a new battery.

However, if your battery has some substantial problems, the manufacturers won’t provide you with a warranty and won’t charge your battery. The problems are outlined below.

  • If you use the battery for a purpose, that is not its intended work field.
  • When you purposefully misuse the battery.
  • If the battery is torn or worn intentionally.
  • When the battery gets damaged because of your carelessness or intentionally causes accidents.
  • If you don’t charge or discharge the battery properly.
  • Because of your house’s electricity or short circuit problems.

Claiming warranty of the battery

If your battery isn’t damaged because of any of the above causes, you can claim the warranty. You need to check if you have a sufficient warranty period or not. If you have a warranty period, take the battery to the closest service center of the ACDelco company.

Make sure to take the dated sales receipt with you. Now contact a technician and tell him about your battery problem. They will thoroughly examine it in order to extrapolate its problems. It may take a day or two to check your battery.

When the check process is completed, the technicians will contact you. If your battery is too damaged, they will provide you with a new battery.


Let’s check out some FAQs about the topic for better clarification.

How long does an Acdelco battery last?

The average life span of an ACDelco battery is between 2 and 5 years. However, this life span can be changed by how you use it. If you use it with proper care, it can last more than 8 years.

What does the sticker date on a battery mean?

The sticker date on the battery provides information about the battery’s manufacturer, period, area, and series type. It contains 2 letters and 3 numbers. The first letter is the series type, and the last letter is the plant code where the battery is created. The meaning of the three numbers is their manufacturing period.


Most ACDelco batteries have a warranty of about 3-5 years, which starts from their manufacturing date. These dates are attached to the battery’s surface area. So if you want to check if your battery has a warranty period or not, you must know “how to read the ACDelco battery date code.”

To check the battery date code, you have to get it first. That’s why you should check the top and bottom sides of the battery. If you see a 5-digit code, the first digit shows its series number, and the next 3 digits show its manufacturing date. The last digit will tell you about its production plant.

If you have a warranty period, you can claim the battery’s warranty. However, you will not be eligible for a warranty if you intentionally damage the battery or if it explodes due to improper care. Then go to any ACDelco service center and tell the technicians about your problem. They will check the problem and then provide you with a new battery.
