The car battery serves as a storage device for the electricity that powers the starter and fuel systems. Once the starter has done its job of starting your car, the alternator takes over to keep the car running and supply the electricity needed for the other operating systems, as well as continuously recharging the battery. However, because the battery is hidden under the hood, it is easy to forget about its condition until you find yourself stranded in a parking lot or your driveway, waiting for a car battery replacement.

Just what are the symptoms of a bad car battery, you wonder? Watch out for these signs of a battery going bad:

  • Starting problems. As the battery ages, the cranking amps become weaker and weaker. If neglected long enough, eventually your car won’t start at all.
  • Warning light on the dash instrument panel. If this light comes on while you’re driving, have it checked out as soon as possible. Once you turn off your car, you may not be able to get it going again until you have a car battery replacement.
  • Electrical components and accessories don’t work. When a battery starts to die and the voltage drops, the electrical components in your car, such as power windows, door locks, lights, GPS, will start to malfunction.

Remember: Generally, a good quality car battery can last anywhere between four to five years.

Ask your mechanic to inspect your car battery at every oil change as it can go from 90% performance to 20% in just a short period of time. With the dark cold days of winter fast approaching, it’s worth the cost of a car battery replacement to avoid being stranded somewhere, waiting for a tow truck.
