How To Recondition Ford Fusion Energi Battery

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 good 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 repaired.

Before we get started talking these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that when experiencing issues with your car battery, be sure to check the battery connections and cables first because occasionally a faulty connection can appear to be a bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case 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 regularly, it is 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 indication of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  Additionally, newer cars have a battery light, like the check engine light. This will only light up if there’s a problem with the battery.

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

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

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

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you’re needing to jump your battery to get your vehicle started more than 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 get the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

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