Without a battery, your car simply isn’t 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 vehicle 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 needs to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we get started talking these 7 critical signs, it’s important to note that when experiencing problems with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and wires first because sometimes 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 regularly, it’s 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 sign of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being feeble will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, be sure to check the battery power level.   This will only light up if there is an issue with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery lifespan, in perfect conditions, is about five decades.  

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

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, then this is often a symptom of leaking battery acid. This can damage other engine components 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 can use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you’re needing to jump your battery to get your car 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 is best to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

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