7 Signs Your Car Battery Is About To Die And Needs To Be Replaced (or reconditioned)

Without a battery, your car simply is not functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is if your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the great news is… there are several 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 has to be replaced or repaired.

Before we get started talking these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that when experiencing problems with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and wires first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem 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”grab,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the starter 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 good indication of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, be sure to check the battery power level.   Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, like the check engine light. This will only light up if there is a problem with the battery.

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

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

This can damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice this, you may either bring your own battery into a shop 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 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 is ideal to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

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