One Little Light, One Impressive Interstate Battery

Interstate® batteries can surprise you with how reliable they are – even after they point out electrical problems in your car.

After 11 years, one of our batteries continues to surprise Fayetteville, N.C., resident Bobby Hairr. His biggest surprise came a little more than two years ago when the battery died and then came back to life.

In 2010, the battery in Bobby’s 1998 Chevy Astro van couldn’t turn over the engine. When he popped the hood, he discovered that his Mega-Tron Plus® battery was about 9 years old. He gave the battery a jump-start and drove to his mechanic.

The real problem wasn’t under the hood. It was in his glove compartment. A little light inside had somehow frozen and stayed on.

If we use it, you could get some Team Interstate gear!

Every indicator, sensor and light in a vehicle draws its power from the battery. Automotive technicians can test the electrical system for shorts, extra loads – anything that can put extra strain on the battery.

The mechanic had to order a part, so Bobby would need to come back later.

Already impressed, he bought another Interstate, but his van still started and ran fine. After all, the battery was going to go, right?

A couple of days later, Bobby’s light was fixed – and the old battery still started. After a couple of weeks, the battery still cranked. Two years later, the battery’s still working.

“In the cold weather, struggled some,” Bobby said.

That’s OK, though. He’s got an extra Interstate in the back.
