Reconditioned Industrial Forklift Batteries

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 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 will go over 7 hints your car battery is going to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we get started discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that if 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 larger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, if your vehicle turns over for longer than normal or takes a while to”catch,” it often is because the battery charge is low.  While the starter can be the culprit, most of the time the battery is to blame.  If this is happening regularly, it’s a good 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 indication of something off with your vehicle.  The battery power being weak will trip the check engine light.  If your check engine light is on, make certain 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 your battery is beginning to fade is if electric components are struggling to function (such as lighting, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

5) Swollen Battery Case – If you look under the hood and your battery case looks swollen, bloated, or malformed; it is a sign that temperature has influenced the chemical elements of the battery, shortening the lifespan.

This may damage other engine components if not addressed immediately.  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 Jump starts Needed – if you’re having to jump your battery to get your vehicle started over three times a week, it’s 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 correct the battery yourself.

If your car battery is showing any of those 7 signals, know that your battery needs to be replaced or repaired before your car no more runs.
