How To Recondition A Power Tool Battery

With no battery, your car simply is not functional.  One of the most inconvenient things in life is when your car battery suddenly dies unexpectedly!

But the great 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 guide we will go over 7 hints your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we get started talking 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 wires first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your vehicle turns over for more than normal or takes a while 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 regularly, it’s a fantastic 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 sign of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being feeble will trip the check engine light.  This is only going to light up if there is an issue with the battery.

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

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

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

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you’re needing to jump your battery to get your car started over three times each week, it’s time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it’s ideal to have the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

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