Signs Your Battery Needs to Be Replaced
Car batteries typically last three to five years, but the environment your vehicle is in can play a big role in battery life and efficiency. Here are a few common indications that your battery needs to be inspected or replaced:
- Your Car Struggles to Turn Over: If your vehicle is struggling to turn over or if it doesn’t turn over at all, there is a good chance your battery needs to be replaced. A low ticking sound is a clear sign of battery trouble.
- The Headlights Are Dim: The battery powers all the accessories in the vehicle, like headlights and security features. If those features are presenting with low power, it is often a clear sign of a low battery.
- You See Corrosion: A battery can begin to leak or corrode if it goes bad. If you see signs of corrosion or if the battery is bulging in the case, you want to schedule a service appointment as soon as possible.
- You Smell Rotten Eggs: When batteries leak or turn, they often emit the smell of rotten eggs. This is a sign that you need car care right away.
