Keeping an Eye on the Battery
It’s important to pay attention to your car battery to avoid being stranded. Simply giving it a look over can give a good indication if it’s still good. Any of the following means you will want to replace your car battery.
- If there is corrosion around the terminals or if the battery looks bloated, then it is probably time.
- If you have had the battery for more than three years, you might want to get the voltage tested. We can test your voltage for you.
- If your engine won’t turn over, you might want to take a look at the battery.
- If the engine does turn over, but the car won’t start you’ll also want to take a look at it.
- Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, that could mean it’s going to go soon and you’ll want to replace it.
- Another easy way of telling if your battery needs to be replaced is if you simply keep having to jump your car. If the battery won’t keep a charge, then it’s time to get a new one.
