How To Recondition 18 Volt Dewalt Batteries

Without a battery, your car simply isn’t functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is when your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the good news is… there are a number of ways to know if your vehicle battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this guide we will go over 7 hints your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that if experiencing issues with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and cables first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your vehicle turns over for more than normal or takes a while to”catch,” 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 regularly, it’s a good sign your car battery is going bad and it may 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.   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 decades.  

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure indication that your battery is beginning to fade is if electric 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 become aware of this, you may either bring your 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 vehicle started over three times each 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.

If your car battery is showing any of these 7 signs, know that your battery should be replaced or reconditioned before your car no more runs.
