Hybrid Battery Reconditioning Chemicals

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 great news is… there are a number of ways to know if your vehicle battery is on the verge of dying and has to be replaced.   In this guide we’ll go over 7 hints your car battery is about to die and needs to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we begin talking these 7 critical signs, it’s important to note that when experiencing problems 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, if your car 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, the majority of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening frequently, it is a fantastic sign your car battery is going bad and it could 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 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 is an issue 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 mark it is time to begin looking for a replacement or recondition it to give it new life.

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

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, then this is frequently a symptom of leaking battery acid. This may damage other engine components if not addressed quickly.  If you become aware of this, you may either bring your own battery into a shop 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 car started over three times a week, it is time to replace the battery or recondition it.  Excessive jumping can also damage other systems, so it is ideal to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

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