Nascar Heat 3 Patch Notes

With no battery, your car simply is not 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 has to be replaced.   In this guide we will go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

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

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your car turns over for more than normal or takes a while 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 regularly, 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 sign 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 will only light up if there is an issue with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery life span, in ideal conditions, is about five decades.  

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

This may damage other engine parts if not addressed quickly.  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 measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you’re having to jump your battery to get your car 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’s ideal to have the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

If your vehicle battery is showing any of those 7 signs, know that your battery needs to be replaced or repaired before your car no more runs.
