Nothing. It just sits there. You blink. Your mind reels. How can this be happening? The battery in your car is dead.

Remember, you can keep your car battery charged by driving your car just 30 minutes a week. The best thing to do is to drive it at highway speeds for at least a half an hour per week to keep the battery charged.
At Lithia Auto, we hope you never have to deal with a dead battery and suggest you ask your certified Lithia auto technician to check your battery every time you come by for an oil change. Getting your battery tested and maintained will extend its life and keep you rolling down the road.
