Does My Car Battery Need Replacing?

Your car battery is the heart of your car, truck, SUV, or minivan.  When it stops working, so does your vehicle.  For this reason, it is very important that you make sure that your battery has the sufficient juice to get you where you need to be in your day-to-day travels.  The last thing anyone wants is to be stranded during a hot summer day or during a frigid winter night because of a faulty battery.  The service center at Basney Honda, located at 3820 N Grape Road in Mishawaka, IN, is a great place to have your car battery inspected and, if need be, replaced.

What Are Some Signs My Car Battery Might Need to Be Checked Out?

Although the failure of a car battery may seem sudden, there are a lot of signs that you can look for to indicate that it may need to be inspected.  If you notice any of these signs, you should schedule an appointment for a battery inspection with the service center at Basney Honda.  Some of the signs that your car battery may be ready to fail include:

  • Your Engine is Slow to Start-Are you noticing that your car is slow to start?  Do you sometimes need to try to start it a couple times before it finally roars to life?  While there may be other causes for this problem, a weak car battery may be the issue.
  • Your Battery is Old-On average, a car battery has the lifespan of around four years.  If your vehicle has had a battery for around that time, it may be a good precaution to schedule an inspection.  A battery inspection will let you know if it is about to fail you.
  • There is Corrosion Around the Battery-A telltale sign of a failing battery is corrosion.  If you suspect that your battery may need replacing, you may have your suspicions confirmed by looking under the hood and seeing a blue substance around one of the terminals.  While cleaning the substance off the terminal may lead to temporary relief, you should schedule a time to get your battery inspected.
  • Your Headlights Dim When the Car Idles-If you notice that your headlights appear to start dying when your vehicle is idling, it may be because your car battery is about to quit.  If they return to normal once your car, truck, SUV, or minivan starts to move again, it may be because your car battery is no longer capable of holding a charge.
