With no battery, your car simply isn’t 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 vehicle 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 begin talking these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that when experiencing issues with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and cables first because sometimes a faulty connection can appear to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your vehicle turns over for longer than normal or takes some time to”catch,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the newcomer can be the culprit, most 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 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.  This is only going to light up if there’s a problem with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery life span, in perfect conditions, is about five decades.  

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure sign that your battery is beginning to fade is if electric components are fighting to function (such as lighting, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

This can damage other engine components 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 needing 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 is best to have 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 car battery is showing any of these 7 signals, know that your battery should be replaced or repaired before your car no longer runs.
