How Do I Know When To Replace My Car Battery?

Learn the Warning Signs of a Dying Battery

Frankly, there's never a good time for your vehicle's battery to die -- but doesn't it always seem like they do at the most inconvenient time possible? It's possible that you're overlooking some subtle signs that your battery is failing, so we though it worthwhile to share those with you. After all, the last thing you want to do is be stranded by the side of the road, waiting for roadside assistance.

If you can answer "yes" to any of these questions, it's a good idea to get your battery checked and/or replaced as soon as you possibly can:

  • Do the vehicle's lights dim when you turn the heat or air conditioning on?
  • Is your car sometimes hard to start?
  • Have you needed to jump-start or recharge your battery?
  • Is your battery three years old or older?
  • Are warning lights turning on?
  • Is the battery's warranty expired?
  • Is there corrosion visible on the battery's posts or cables?
