With no battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  Among the most inconvenient things in life is when your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the great news is… there are several ways to know if your car battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this article we will go over 7 hints your car battery is about to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin talking these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that if experiencing problems with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and wires first because sometimes a faulty connection can appear to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your car turns over for more than normal or takes a while to”catch,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the newcomer can be the culprit, the majority of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening frequently, it is a fantastic sign your car battery is going bad and it could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Check Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a great sign of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, be sure to check the battery power level.   Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, like the check engine light. This is only going to light up if there is an issue with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery lifespan, in perfect conditions, is about five decades.  

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure indication your battery is beginning to fade is if electrical components are fighting to function (such as lighting, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

This may damage other engine components if not addressed quickly.  If you become aware of this, you may either bring your own battery into a shop and have them look at it or you may use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you are needing to jump your battery to get your vehicle started over three times a week, it’s time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it is best to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

If your vehicle battery is showing any of those 7 signals, know that your battery should be replaced or reconditioned before your car no more runs.
