Do I need a new car battery?
Is it time to consider a replacement battery for your car? There are a few signs that it’s time for a new battery:
Your car is struggling to start
If your engine sounds sluggish when you start it up it’s a sign that your battery may need replacing. Pay attention to the engine's response – if it's slower than usual, it's advisable to have your battery checked promptly.
Your vehicle's battery not only kickstarts the engine but also powers various electrical components. When the battery is on the decline, you'll notice dimmer lights throughout your vehicle. While the headlights are the most noticeable, other lights both inside and outside the car may also be affected.
When turning the key to start your car, the battery sends an electrical current to initiate the engine. If the power is insufficient, you may hear a distinctive clicking noise, signaling a potential issue with the battery.
Why do you get issues with your battery?
Issues such as poor starting often serve as indicators of battery health problems or electrical faults leading to premature discharges. Incorrect vehicle charging can result in repeated battery 'failures,' necessitating unnecessary replacements.
