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

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’ll go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to note that when experiencing problems with your car battery, be certain to check the battery connections and cables first because occasionally a faulty connection can seem to be a larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your car turns over for more than normal or takes some time to”catch,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the newcomer can be the culprit, most of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening frequently, it’s a good sign your car battery is going bad and it may be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Assess Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a good sign of something off with your car or truck.  The battery power being feeble will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, make certain to check the battery power level.   This will only light up if there is a problem with the battery.

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

4) Electrical Component Issues –  One sure sign that your battery is starting to fade is if electric components are struggling to function (such as lighting, 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 shop and have them look at it or you may use our reconditioning measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you are needing to jump your battery to get your vehicle started more than three times each week, it is time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it’s best to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

Regular maintenance is important to extend the life of your car battery (and also your vehicle).  If your vehicle battery is showing any of those 7 signals, know that your battery should be replaced or reconditioned before your car no longer runs.
