Replacing Razor Dune Buggy Battery

Without a battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is when your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the good 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 article we’ll go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin talking these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that when experiencing issues with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and cables first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your vehicle turns over for longer than normal or takes a while to”catch,” 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 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 sign of something off with your vehicle.  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.   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 perfect conditions, is about five years.   If your battery is coming up on the five to six year mark it’s time to start looking for a replacement or recondition it to give it new life.

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).

This may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you become aware of this, you may either bring your battery into a store and have them look at it or you may use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you are needing to jump your battery to get your car started over three times each week, it’s time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it is best to get the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

Regular maintenance is important to extend the life of your car battery (along with your vehicle).  If your car battery is showing any of those 7 signals, know that your battery needs to be replaced or repaired before your car no more runs.
