Why Does the Battery Need To Be Checked?

Your car's battery sends a jolt of electricity to the starter motor, getting the engine started. But, like all batteries, it will lose its ability to hold a charge over time. Eventually, your battery will no longer be able to hold enough of a charge to supply the starter with the power it needs, and you'll require a jump start just to get your vehicle going. Rather than let this take you by surprise, you can actually have the voltage of your car battery checked. This will let you know whether the battery still has plenty of life left in it or if it needs to be replaced soon.

When Should I Have the Battery Checked?

Batteries generally last around four or five years; if your battery is approaching that age, it's a good idea to have it checked. However, there are other signs that your battery might need to be checked. If the engine takes longer to turn over when you turn the key or press the ignition button, it may be due to a battery that needs to be replaced. And if your electrical components (like headlights and interior lights) aren't as powerful when the power is on, but you haven't started the engine yet, that may be another sign. In addition, it's a good idea to have the battery checked before winter, since cold weather can make batteries less effective at holding a charge.
