Ford Batteries

Knowing how long you can expect a car battery to last, and how to tell when it needs attention or is getting close to requiring replacement, will help ensure that you don’t wind up getting stuck somewhere unable to start your car. The Ford Motorcraft batteries available at MacPhee Ford have the latest technology making them last anywhere between four to seven years. They are designed to withstand the harshest of climates to make sure your Ford performs to its best abilities. Ford opened up the Motorcraft parts division back in 1972 to provide replacement parts for all their vehicles. Still to this day they are using Motorcraft in their cars, SUVs, and trucks. The Parts Department at MacPhee Ford carries a comprehensive inventory of Motorcraft parts, including a fine selection of Ford batteries. You can even order a new Ford battery online and we’ll have it ready for you to pick up at your convenience. If you are not comfortable replacing your car’s battery on your own, schedule an appointment with our Service Centre.

How to Know if Your Ford Battery Needs to Be Replaced

Here are some of the warning signs to watch out for to know if your Ford battery is reaching its end:

  • Hesitation when starting your vehicle
  • Dimming headlights
  • Cranks or clicks when starting but won’t start
