Where Legal To Ride Dune Buggy

Without a battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  Among the most inconvenient things in life is if 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 has to be replaced.   In this guide we’ll go over 7 hints your car battery is about to die and needs to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it’s important to note that when experiencing issues with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and wires first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your vehicle turns over for longer 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 is a fantastic 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.  This will only light up if there is a problem with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery lifespan, in perfect conditions, is about five decades.   If your battery is coming up on the five to six year mark it is time to begin searching 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 fighting to function (such as lights, 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 influenced the chemical elements 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 may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice this, you may either bring your battery into a store and have them look at it or you may 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 a 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 correct the battery yourself.

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