Allintitle Reconditioned Golf Cart Batteries

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 good news is… there are several ways to know if your vehicle battery is on the verge of dying and has to be replaced.   In this article we’ll go over 7 signs your car battery is about to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it’s 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, in case your car turns over for longer than normal or takes some time to”grab,” 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 frequently, it is a fantastic sign your car battery is going bad and it could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Check Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a great indication of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being feeble 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 lifespan, in perfect conditions, is about five years.  

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

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, then this is frequently a symptom of leaking battery acid. This may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice this, you can either bring your battery into a shop and have them look at it or you can use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you’re needing 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 those 7 signs, know that your battery needs to be replaced or repaired before your car no more runs.
