With no battery, your car simply is not functional.  Among the most inconvenient things in life is if your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the great news is… there are a number of ways to know if your vehicle battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this guide we’ll go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we get started discussing 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 wires first because sometimes a faulty connection can appear to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your car turns over for longer than normal or takes some time to”catch,” 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 could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Check Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a great indication of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being feeble will trip 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 perfect conditions, is about five years.  

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

This may damage other engine components if not addressed immediately.  If you become aware of this, you can either bring your own battery into a store 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 having 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 ideal to get the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

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