Pep Boys Car Battery Protection Service

The Pep Boys Car Battery Protection Service helps keep your newly installed car battery corrosion free throughout every season.

  • Chemical cleaning of car battery cable connectors
  • Installation of acid-neutralizing felt terminal post washers
  • Application of anti-corrosion sealant to car battery terminals


On average, a car battery remains reliable for about three years. There are few factors that can lead to shorter battery lifespan. Things like taking an excessive amount of short drives, extreme temperatures of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit or below 10 degrees Fahrenheit and loose or corroded battery cables will drain your vehicles battery. If your vehicle’s battery is three or more years old, have your car battery tested to determine whether it’s time to replace. We recommend being proactive, so you’re not left stranded.

The Pep Boys Car Battery Protection Service is designed as a preventative countermeasure to remove corrosion on your battery cables and terminals when you install a new battery. Corrosion makes a car battery less efficient and can lead to a no start.

Corrosion on the negative terminal is typically the result of your car battery undercharging. Finding corrosion on the positive terminal is likely due to hydrogen gas produced by the acid in the car battery. The acid mixes with other atmospheric elements under the hood of your car, truck, or SUV and produces the corrosion.

Yes, in many cases. Schedule an appointment a Pep Boys near you to have your car battery terminals cleaned.
