Can You Recondition A Deep Cycle Battery

With no battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  Among the most inconvenient things in life is when 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 has to be replaced.   In this article we’ll go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we get started discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that if experiencing problems with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and wires first because sometimes a faulty connection can seem to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your car turns over for longer 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 is a good 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.  Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, similar to the check engine light. This will only light up if there’s an issue with the battery.

3) Age – A car battery lifespan, in perfect conditions, is about five years.   If your battery is coming up on the five to six year mark it is time to start looking for a replacement or recondition it to give it new life.

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

This may damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you become aware of this, you may either bring your own battery into a store and have them look at it or you may use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you are having to jump your battery to get your vehicle started over three times a week, it is 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.

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 reconditioned before your car no more runs.
