Reconditioned Auto Batteries

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 a number of 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 hints your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

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

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your car turns over for longer 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 is a fantastic 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 feeble will trip the check engine light.  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 years.  

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

6) Smell –  If you smell sulfur or rotten eggs under your hood, then this is often a symptom of leaking battery acid. This may damage other engine parts 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 may use our reconditioning steps and do it yourself.

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you are having to jump your battery to get your vehicle 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’s ideal to have the battery replaced or fix the battery yourself.

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.
