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 good news is… there are several ways to know if your vehicle battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this article we’ll go over 7 hints your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that if experiencing issues 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, 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 newcomer can be the culprit, the majority of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening frequently, it is 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 great indication of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being feeble will trip the check engine light.  This is only going to light up if there’s a problem with the battery.

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

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure sign that your battery is beginning to fade is if electric components are struggling to operate (such as lights, 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 may use our reconditioning measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you’re having to jump your battery to get your vehicle started more than three times each 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 fix the battery yourself.

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