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

Without a battery, your car simply is not functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is if your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the good 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 guide we will go over 7 hints your car battery is about to die and has to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that when experiencing problems with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and cables first because sometimes a faulty connection can seem to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if 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 newcomer can be the culprit, most 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 may 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 car or truck.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, like the check engine light. This is only going to light up if there’s an issue with the battery.

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

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

5) Swollen Battery Case – If you look under the hood and your battery case looks swollen, bloated, or malformed; it is a indication that temperature has affected the chemical components of the battery, shortening the lifespan.

This may damage other engine parts if not addressed quickly.  If you notice this, you can either bring your battery into a shop and have them look at it or you can use our reconditioning measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you are having to jump your battery to get your vehicle started more than three times each 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 longer runs.
