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

With no 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 needs to be replaced.   In this guide we will go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it’s important to remember that if experiencing issues with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and wires first because sometimes a faulty connection can seem to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your vehicle turns over for longer 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 good sign your car battery is going bad and it could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Assess Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a great sign of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  This will only light up if there is a problem with the battery.

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

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

This can damage other engine components 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 measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple Jump starts Needed – if you’re having 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’s ideal to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

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