Without a battery, your car simply is not 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 car 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 about to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we get started talking these 7 critical signs, it’s important to remember that if experiencing issues with your car battery, be certain 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 some time to”catch,” 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 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 good sign of something off with your car or truck.  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.   This is only going to light up if there is a problem with the battery.

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

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

5) Swollen Battery Case – If you look under the hood and your battery case looks swollen, bloated, or malformed; it’s a indication that temperature has affected the chemical elements of the battery, shortening the lifespan.

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

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you are having to jump your battery to get your car started over 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.

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