6 Signs That Your Battery Needs Replacing
Slow Engine Crank
The battery creates the power to start your car, and the alternator keeps the battery going by replacing the power used to start the engine and run your vehicle’s electronic accessories. If your battery is weakening, your car may not start.
Issues with Electrical Components
The car battery powers several electrical elements in your vehicle, including the engine, windows, seats, radio, and dashboard lights.
If you notice that your electronic elements aren’t operating like they used to, the battery may be wearing out. Check the battery terminals for dirt and replace the battery if necessary.
Dashboard Warning Light
Most cars have a battery warning light that comes on if the battery isn’t being replenished properly or if there’s an internal problem with the battery.
Swollen Battery Case
When a battery is exposed to excessive heat or cold, it may swell and eventually become electrically “dead” and need replacing.
An automobile battery lasts about five years, but it can go much longer depending on extreme temperature exposure, range of deep discharges and whether it goes through full charge cycles.
When a battery has been frozen, overcharged or shorted internally, its case could vent gas. The acid will eat away at different engine elements, inflicting corrosion.
