5 Warning Signs That Reveal Your Battery Needs Replacement.

No one enjoys battery issues. It’s irritating
that when you are already prepared to leave
for work in the morning but your car won’t
start. No one enjoys being stuck
somewhere at night because your car won’t
start.
Batteries are vital when it comes to giving
your car the power it needs to function.
First of all, the battery starts your car with
its stored power. Second, it keeps all the
vehicle parts that rely on electricity running
while your car is turned on — including the
radio, heater, air conditioning, and other
features.
We bring forth to you some warning signs
that reveal when your battery needs
replacement.
1. Engine cranks over and over before
finally starting:
This can indicate your battery isn’t
charging as it should. Check the battery
straight away. Do not ignore a slow
starting engine.
2. Check engine light come on when
starting your car:
We all know that check engine light can
mean a lot. Low battery can be one of
them.
3. Your battery is swollen:
If the battery is swollen, have an auto
electrician check it for you.
The likely cause is that the battery has
become overcharged due to overheating or
excessive revving of the engine. Another
cause of a swollen battery is that it is
beyond its expiration date.
4. Battery is past its expiration date:
Your battery can last longer than its
expected lifetime; this solely depends on
often you drive your car.
5. Visible signs of corrosion on or near the
battery:
Corrosion on the positive (+) and negative
(-) hookups where your cables meet the
battery indicates battery leak. It is possible
to drive your car under this condition, but
as the corrosion worsens.
If you decide to ignore these signs, you
might once day end up with a stalled car
when you least expect it. Take the
necessary actions when you find out any of
these signs. Form it as a habit to Clean the
battery terminals every six months and to
have the battery inspected
