A dead car battery can cause many issues. You could end up stuck on the road or it could lead to other vehicle issues. If you tend to ignore your car battery’s lifespan, it’s time to start paying more attention.
Here are 4 signs your car battery is nearly dead.
If your engine cranks but won’t start, then chances are your battery is the problem. A quick solution to the problem would be getting your car jump-started with jumper cables. But if this doesn’t work, you probably need to replace your battery.
No Life Signs
Your car battery powers all the lights and accessories in your car. So, if you go to turn on your car and no lights turn on, your car battery is most likely dead. But, if your car won’t start but the headlights turn on, it may be a more mechanical problem involving the engine.
Car Is Fine One Day, Won’t Work The Next
When your car works one day and then doesn’t the next, it can be an indication that your car battery terminals are loose or broken. You can check out the battery cables since they tend to be an issue too. The cables should fit firmly on the battery posts.
Jumpstarting The Car Too Much
Considering jumpstarting your car can work most of the time, you may find yourself overdoing it. If you have to jumpstart your car at least once a week, then it is time for a battery replacement. You should fix the battery as soon as you can since jumpstarting your battery too much can lead to other mechanical issues. You may end up needing a new alternator or starter if your battery is not replaced.
