Short Answer — AutoZone offers free battery installation for most batteries purchased at AutoZone. However, it may be unable to install your battery if the battery’s location in your vehicle is difficult to access.

Does AutoZone Install Batteries?

AutoZone offers battery installation when you purchase a new car battery from AutoZone, and installation services are free with the purchase of your new battery.[1]

However, AutoZone may not install the battery under certain conditions.


If the installation requires the associate to remove other components from the car, you may need to have the battery installed elsewhere.

Additionally, AutoZone may not install the battery if it is located in an unusual spot, such as in the wheel well or under a seat.[1]

AutoZone also will not install a car battery purchased from a different retailer, such as O’Reilly Auto Parts or Walmart.[1]

Other Battery Services

In addition to installation, AutoZone offers free battery testing while the battery is still in your car and free battery charging while you wait.[2]

Store services vary by location, so you may want to contact your nearest AutoZone before visiting.

If there’s a problem with your new car battery, AutoZone allows you to return it within 90 days.

Other Places That Install Batteries

If there is no AutoZone in your area, there are other nationwide auto parts chains that have battery installation services, including Advance Auto Parts, NAPA, and O’Reilly Auto Parts (as previously reported).

    Just bought a 2008 Chrysler Sebring and the battery is in the wheel well. If I buy a new battery from AutoZone will they change this for me?

      Hello, Jody! Unfortunately, AutoZone typically will not install the battery if it is located in the wheel well. We have updated our article to reflect this.
