Your car battery is essential to how your car functions. A failing or dead battery means you won’t be going anywhere. If you want to have uninterrupted driving time, pay attention to the following signs. These will signal it is time to purchase and install a new car battery.
The most obvious sign is an engine that won’t start. You put the key in or push the button and nothing happens, then it’s a clear signal that your car’s battery needs attention. It could be a loose connection or a battery that has zero power left.
If you car is starting, but starting slowly, or after a few attempts, your battery is lacking the power it needs for a productive start. You may get it going, but other components may not work as the battery doesn’t have the juice to power everything you need. A battery that is slow to start the engine will just get less powerful. If you notice this with your battery, it’s time for a check and new battery install from Ken Nelson Nissan.
A quick glance under the hood will reveal if your battery is in trouble. If you notice the connections are corroded or there is gunk built up on the terminal, it’s time to bring your vehicle in for service. These degraded connections will impact how your battery performs.
