Signs Your Car Needs a New Battery

A car battery lasts, on average, about three years. This number fluctuates depending on certain conditions, including the climate. Hotter conditions lead to earlier breakdown, while cooler conditions result in a slightly longer life.

As the battery wears out, a number of signs may make an appearance. By watching closely for them, you’ll know when to schedule your next appointment. Some of these signs include the following:

  • Corrosion on battery
  • Engine slow to turn on
  • Excessive jump starts
  • Clicking or cranking noises

Another sign you might notice is that the check engine light comes on. The battery light, on the other hand, signals issues with the charging system and/or the alternator. Whatever’s lit up on your dashboard, you can be assured that our technicians will take care of it!
