Caution High Voltage!!
Hybrid batteries like other electrical components have an average life span between 7-10 years or roughly 100,000 miles. However, there are ways to help prolong the lifespan of these batteries. The best way to get the most life out of these batteries is to drive them. Letting the batteries sit dormant drains the life span of the battery down quicker than it would if the car was being driven regularly.
In some cases, replacing a hybrid battery can be a tricky task. When dealing with up to 300 volts of power coming from the hybrid battery, it can be dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken. We have all the proper tools to replace and program, almost all, hybrid batteries to the manufacturer’s standards.
