4 problems that warrant Car Battery Replacement

by Deepika Singh Writer

A car battery is the powerhouse of the car. Unfortunately, even well-maintained cars are subject to battery issues and a replacement is inevitable every 3-4 years. If the car battery dies in the middle of a drive, you might get stranded in an unfamiliar place. Not only will it be very inconvenient, but also very risky. 

Fortunately, the car gives us indications or warning signs beforehand so that you can go for a battery replacement service in time. Ignorance on your part will lead to trouble. Mentioned below are four indications that your car’s battery is dying.

Fluctuating signals

When the battery deteriorates, it starts affecting the functionality of other parts of the car like the signals on the speedometer. It may be the fluctuating check-engine light or the battery light indicating that the battery needs servicing or replacement. These signals can also flicker for other reasons like the car battery is not charging; the alternator can also be an issue. You should consider getting it checked by the car battery service professionals before making any hasty decisions.

Dim headlights

If the battery of your car is failing and not being able to power the car efficiently, the electrical components, including the headlights, will eventually malfunction. If you start encountering visibility issues during the night due to insufficient light, consider getting it checked by the experts.

Car won’t start

If you frequently encounter problems with getting the car started, maybe it is the battery that needs replacement. Since the battery is the main source of power and it directly provides power required for ignition, the car may face problems in getting started with a faulty battery. Consult an expert in situations like these rather than taking matters into your own hands.

Clicking sound

When the key is in the ignition, the battery sends a signal that starts the car. If the battery is not functioning properly, the signal will be weaker as well. This reduced or insufficient power, when received by the starter, makes a clicking noise. 

If you are planning to get the battery replaced, asking for expert’s opinions is always better as the replacing cost is far more than the cost of repair. While searching for battery services you may also look up car interior cleaning near me on Google. However, do check the reviews before choosing a center.
