7 Signs Your Car Battery Is About To Die and Should Be Replaced (or reconditioned)

Without a battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is when your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the great news is… there are a number of 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 signs your car battery is about to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we get started discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that when experiencing issues with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and wires first because occasionally a faulty connection can appear to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your vehicle turns over for more than normal or takes some time to”grab,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the starter can be the culprit, most of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening frequently, it’s a good sign your car battery is going bad and it could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Assess Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a good indication of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being feeble will trip the check engine light.  Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, like the check engine light. This will only light up if there is a problem with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery lifespan, in ideal conditions, is about five years.  

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure sign that your battery is starting to fade is if electric components are fighting to function (such as lights, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, this is frequently a symptom of leaking battery acid. This may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice this, you can either bring your own battery into a shop and have them look at it or you can use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you are having to jump your battery to get your car started more than three times a week, it is time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it is best to get the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

Regular maintenance is important to extend the life of your car battery (and also your vehicle).  If your vehicle battery is showing any of these 7 signals, know that your battery needs to be replaced or reconditioned before your car no more runs.
