Dallas Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram covers some basics below!
On average, a car battery lasts about three years. This can depend on a variety of factors, and many batteries can last longer than this. Weather, how often you drive, and even your driving habits can all affect a battery’s life.
At about three years, getting your battery tested occasionally can help you determine when a replacement is needed. You can test it yourself or head to a service center and ask a technician to test it.
There are a few signs that tell you your battery is dying.
If it takes multiple tries to start your vehicle, that can indicate your battery is not working properly. This is because there might not be enough power to turn the engine over.
Many vehicles today come with a battery dashboard light. If that comes on, it might indicate that your battery needs to be replaced.
When you pop your vehicle’s hood, you can check out your battery. If your battery needs to be replaced, there might be a couple of signs on the battery itself. One is a bloated battery case, which can mean your battery is overcharged. Another is battery fluid leaking, which can mean your battery has been damaged.
Regardless of if you want to get your battery checked or need it to be replaced, our service center is happy to lend a hand. We have highly experienced technicians who can give your vehicle an inspection and determine if your battery needs to be replaced.
