With no battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  Among 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 car 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 going to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it’s 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 seem to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if 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 newcomer can be the culprit, the majority of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening regularly, it’s a good sign your car battery is going bad and it may be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Check Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a good indication 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.   This is only going to light up if there’s 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 your battery is starting to fade is if electric components are fighting to operate (such as lights, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

This can damage other engine components if not addressed quickly.  If you become aware of this, you may either bring your battery into a shop 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 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 is best to have the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

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