How To Restore A Agm Battery

With no battery, your car simply is not functional.  Among 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 car battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this article we’ll go over 7 signs your car battery is going to die and needs to be replaced or repaired.

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

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your car turns over for more than normal or takes some time to”grab,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the newcomer can be the culprit, the majority 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) Assess Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a good sign 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 life span, 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 looking for a replacement or recondition it to give it new life.

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

This can damage other engine parts if not addressed immediately.  If you notice 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 Jump starts Needed – if you are 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 is ideal to get the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

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