Bear Grylls Death Cause

With no battery, your car simply is not 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 vehicle battery is on the verge of dying and has 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 repaired.

Before we begin talking these 7 critical signs, it’s important to remember that if experiencing problems with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and wires first because sometimes a faulty connection can appear to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your car turns over for more 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’s 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 indication of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being feeble will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, be sure to check the battery power level.   This is only going to light up if there is an issue 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 indicate it’s time to begin searching for a replacement or recondition it to give it new life.

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

This can damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  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 measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you are having to jump your battery to get your car started more than three times a week, it is 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.

Regular maintenance is important to extend the life of your car battery (and also your vehicle).  If your car battery is showing any of these 7 signals, know that your battery should be replaced or reconditioned before your car no more runs.
