Replacing your battery is among the most important when it comes to the safety and upkeep maintenance of your vehicle. Several factors can affect the lifespan of your vehicles battery, such as extreme weather conditions, how often the car runs or sits, and the quality of the current battery. Although there isn't an exact science, the general rule of thumb is to replace your battery every 4 years, and get it inspected at the 3 year mark. Once you replace your vehicle's battery, its lifespan depends on how long it can hold its charge as well as how long it's capable of being recharged. Once it can't be recharged, it's dead.

Signs your battery might be dying: 
  • A slow starting engine
  • Dim lights and electrical issues 
  • Check engine light 
  • A bad smell
  • Corroded connections
  • A misshapen battery case
  • A battery 4 years old or older
It's important to note that the batteries in new vehicles often don't provide signs that they're about to fail. This is why it's a good idea to remember the three to four year rule. 

There are other car issues that can mimic a dying battery, such as loose or corroded wires/connections, a loose alternator belt, a faulty alternator, or a bad starter. This is where we come in!
