Warning Signs That Your Battery May Need An Inspection

You may do a few things before coming to our shop to ensure your car battery is in good working order.

Here are a few warning indicators to keep an eye out for:

  • It takes longer for your vehicle to start.
  • The Warning Light comes on.
  • You can verify your batteries at home by turning on the ignition, turning on the headlights, the heater blower engine, or any electrical equipment, and then pressing the horn. If your headlights are dimming, it’s time to have your battery checked.
  • The battery case is bloated and/or looks dirty.

A bad battery can cause problems with your charging system and possibly your starter and put needless strain on the battery starter-alternator.

Your Battery’s Life Span

A car battery is expected to last 3 to 5 years in most cases. Your battery should be checked at least once a year. The life of your battery might be shortened by certain driving practices or numerous short excursions.

Trail Tire Auto Centers Kelowna is the place to go if you need automobile batteries. While a battery in bad condition can still operate your vehicle, it can present several issues, including being more difficult to start in the winter, during long periods of not driving, and limiting its capacity to recharge.

Signs That You Need a New Battery

There are many indicators to pay attention to that may signal that you need a new battery for your car. Below are some to help you identify if you need a new battery. If you see any of the signs listed below, it is time to bring your car to Trail Tire Auto Centers Kelowna for a check-up and possible battery replacement.

  • If your battery has been in your possession for 3–5 years.
  • If the warranty period on your battery has run out.
  • If your car takes longer than usual to start.
  • If your vehicle’s interior lights aren’t operating or are dimmer than usual.
  • If the heat controls are broken.
  • If you’ve used a portable charger or had to jump-start it recently.
  • If your battery has deteriorated and is emitting a foul odor.

Sluggish batteries don’t often show symptoms before failure, and testing your battery is the only way to confirm its charge. Our cold and unexpected winters shorten the lifetime of car batteries to a range of three to five years, making this often-overlooked car maintenance item very vital for Canadians. If your battery is older than 3 years or you’ve previously had to boost it, schedule a battery appointment with us, and we’ll give it a thorough examination.

What Are the Benefits of Car Battery Replacement?

The majority of automobile owners overlook the need to change their vehicle’s battery. Over 70% of automobile batteries don’t survive more than 4 years. However, there are some steps you can take to extend the life of your battery. Maintaining your battery fresh, checking for rusted components, avoiding wearing it down, and adequately charging it every couple of months will help extend its life.

All automotive batteries will ultimately approach the decline stage, even with routine maintenance due to severe wear and tear temperatures and normal aging. You wouldn’t want to be stuck on the side of the road with a drained vehicle battery. When it comes to requiring a car new battery, there are a few warning signals to look out for, such as:

  • Your battery has corroded terminals and wires.
  • Your vehicle fails to start.
