7 Signs Your Car Battery Is About To Die and Should Be Replaced (or reconditioned)

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 car battery is on the verge of dying and needs to be replaced.   In this article we will go over 7 signs your car battery is about to die and has to be replaced or reconditioned.

Before we begin discussing these 7 critical signs, it is important to remember that if 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 bigger problem.

1) Slow Cranking – When turning the key, in case your vehicle turns over for longer 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 could be time to replace your battery or recondition it.

2) Check Engine Light/Battery Warning Light – The check engine light is always a great sign of something off with your vehicle.  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 lifespan, 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 electric components are fighting to operate (such as lighting, windshield wipers, power locks, and windows).

This may damage other engine components if not addressed immediately.  If you notice this, you may either bring your own battery into a store and have them look at it or you can use our reconditioning measures and do it yourself.

7) Multiple recoil begins Needed – if you’re having 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 have the battery replaced or correct the battery yourself.

If your vehicle battery is showing any of those 7 signs, know that your battery should be replaced or reconditioned before your car no more runs.
