What causes you to need a new battery?
Batteries aren’t made to last forever. In fact, most batteries will only last three to five years. If your battery is close to the end of its life, regular inspections are a good idea. Aside from an aging battery, things like driving in extreme cold or hot temperatures or leaving your car idling can wear your battery down, causing you to need a new one.
How do I know if I need a new battery?
There are a lot of signs to look for that alert you that your battery may be reaching the end of its life. One is that your check engine light is on. Obviously, this could mean a lot of things, so it’s important to get it checked out. You might also notices that your battery case appears bloated when you look under the hood. Some other signs are a slow engine crank and needing to jumpstart your car often.
