With no battery, your car simply isn’t 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 car battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this article we will go over 7 hints your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it’s important to remember that when experiencing issues with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and cables first because occasionally a faulty connection can appear to be a larger 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 starter can be the culprit, most of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening regularly, it is a good 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 great sign of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, similar to 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 ideal conditions, is about five years.  

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure sign your battery is starting to fade is if electrical components are fighting to function (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 is a sign that temperature has affected the chemical components of the battery, shortening the lifespan.

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, this is frequently a symptom of leaking battery acid. This can damage other engine parts if not addressed quickly.  If you notice this, you can either bring your own battery into a store and have them look at it or you can 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 a week, it’s 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.

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.
