Have you experienced the frustration of a dead battery when you’re rushing out the door to get to work? Then you need to know when your car battery should be replaced. Even though you may have noticed a few starting problems, they may not have seemed serious, until all of a sudden you are stranded in your driveway.

There are a couple of things that you can do periodically to check the condition of your battery:

  • Check the fluid level in the terminals— If the fluid is too low, your battery is unable to hold a charge.
  • Check the cable connections—loose or corroded connections prohibit the flow of electrical current from traveling to your vehicle’s electrical components.

So how do you know when your car battery should be replaced? Here are a few indicators that your car battery is starting to fail:

  1. Engine cranks but doesn't start.  Even though your engine sounds like it should start, there isn’t enough charge.
  2. Your engine won’t start at all.  The battery may be completely dead. Depending on how old your battery is, it could indicate the alternator is failing to charge the battery.
  3. The lights don’t come on or even flicker. The battery is completely dead.
  4. Intermittent Starting Issues.  The battery terminals could be corroded or broken, or there is a slow drain on the battery even when the engine is off.

Your auto mechanic can easily determine the cause of your starting problems—a dying battery, a failing alternator, or a bad starter. If the alternator and starter are ruled out as the culprit of your starting problems, a simple and relatively inexpensive car battery replacement will get you on the road again!
