How often should you replace your car’s battery?
Should you replace your car battery before it dies? It’s a good question. There won't always be obvious signs that your car’s battery is dying, so regular vehicle inspections will save you both time and money. Car batteries need proper testing and diagnostics every three to four months, and they usually last three to five years. If your battery is in that range, it may be time for a replacement. That’s one way to tell when your car battery needs replacing.
Car battery life spans can also be affected by driving habits and environmental conditions, which could accelerate the need for a battery replacement. Jiffy Lube® Ottawa can help you determine when to replace your car battery.
Signs that your car battery needs to be replaced
- Check engine warning light is on
- Headlights are dimmer than usual
- Car is not starting or taking a while to start up
- The engine cranks slower than normal
- The engine cranks but won’t start
- The radio or other electronic accessories are not turning on
- Car makes a clicking sound when you try to start
Jiffy Lube® Ottawa can help determine the health of your existing battery, or if you just want to replace it, our technicians will recommend the right battery for your vehicle.
Causes for dead car batteries
There are many common mistakes that can decrease your car battery’s lifespan. To help extend your car battery’s life, avoid the following common mistakes:
- Forgetting to turn off your car’s accessories, such as the interior and exterior lights
- Not starting your car for an extended period
