With no 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 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 signs your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we get started talking these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that if experiencing problems with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and wires first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your car turns over for more than normal or takes some time to”catch,” 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 regularly, it is a good 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 sign of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, make certain to check the battery power level.   This is only going to light up if there’s a problem with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery life span, in perfect conditions, is about five years.   If your battery is coming up on the five to six year indicate it’s time to start looking for a replacement or recondition it to give it new life.

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

This may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice 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’re needing to jump your battery to get your vehicle 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’s ideal 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 those 7 signals, know that your battery should be replaced or reconditioned before your car no longer runs.
