Signs your Car's Battery may need replacing


Your car’s battery is a crucial component that helps power the engine and electronics. However, like any other part, it can wear out over time and lose its effectiveness. Here are six signs that you need a battery service:

1. Slow Starting Engine – If it takes a few extra seconds for your engine to turn over, it may be a sign that your battery is losing its charge and needs to be replaced.

2. Dim Lights and Electrical Issues – The battery powers all of the electronics in your vehicle. If you notice that your lights are dimming or your radio and dashboard computer are having a hard time running at full power, it may be time for a battery replacement.

3. Check Engine Light is On – The check engine light can mean just about anything, but it’s worth checking if your battery is working at full capacity. If not, it’s time to replace it.

4. Bad Smell – If you smell rotten eggs when you open your hood, it could be a sign of a leaking battery.

5. Corrosion – Corroded connectors and corroded terminals on the top of your battery can lead to voltage issues and trouble starting your vehicle. If you notice a white, ashy substance on the metal parts of your battery, it’s time for a replacement.

6. Battery Age – Car batteries typically last 3-5 years under ideal conditions. Once it gets close to the 3-year mark, it’s a good idea to get your battery performance tested regularly.
