Cars need the electrical power produced by batteries for many different purposes, including starting the engine, storing electrical energy, and supplying electrical power to the engine. Cars use battery power to operate electrical systems when the alternator is not running, including headlights, stereo, and most dashboard control operations. Car batteries are charged by the alternator, but starting and stopping the engine within a short time span can cause the battery to die, because the alternator needs about 20 minutes of engine power to fully charge a drained battery. Leaving electronics or lights running while the car is off will drain power from the battery, and extreme temperatures can cause a car battery to fail. Severe cold or heat can cause problems with a battery’s chemical reaction needed to generate power. If you are experiencing battery problems, then you may need a jump start to get going again.
If you find yourself with a dead battery, there’s no need to panic. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you get your vehicle up and running. If you don’t know how to jump start your vehicle or no one else is around to help, give us a call. Incorrectly connected jumper cables can destroy your battery or even your entire engine control computer. After a member of our service staff arrives on the scene, he or she will determine whether the problem lies with the battery or with a different part of your vehicle. If a dead battery is the source of your issues, our staff member will handle the jumpstart process from start to finish so that you don’t have to worry. Just give us a call when you’re in need of assistance.

What’s the difference between Repairs and Maintenance?
Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle.
Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.
The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner's manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.
All BIG O Tire dealers in BC pride themselves on being able to provide the best customer service and the highest quality service work available anywhere. To support that, a service warranty on workmanship, service and/or parts is provided by each independent BIG O Tires dealership. These warranties vary from one aspect of our business to another - Tire warranties are different from Wheel warranties, and each of these differ from warranties on Service work performed during the course of a repair or maintenance on your vehicle. Ask your BIG O dealer at the time of purchase of these products and/or services what the warranty period is and what is covered under it.
