Signs It’s Time for a Battery Change

Signs It’s Time for a Battery Change

Yarmouth auto care As any vehicle owner knows, the battery is the heart of your machine. It needs to be running well and strong enough to handle all of the miles you will use it for. However, despite our best efforts, we all deal with situations that require Yarmouth auto care. To ensure your battery stays in optimal shape, look out for these warning signs.

 

 

1.) Ignition Troubles

To get your vehicle started, the battery sends current to the ignition. If you notice your ignition is not working, or it is hard to start your car, the battery could be malfunctioning. This also goes for other electric functions (AC, etc.) that require a battery to run efficiently.

 

 

2.) Excess Heat Exposure

Batteries do not work well with heat. If enough heat exposure occurs, you will probably be dealing with a melted or non-functioning battery. If you suspect your battery may have been in the sun too long, visit Dan’s Tire & Auto for a free quote for Yarmouth auto care.

 

 

3.) Expiration

Every battery has its own shelf life, and you may be holding a battery in your vehicle that has seen its day. When you purchase a new battery, always keep the expiration date in mind. Whether you have to write it down, look at it, or something else, knowing it is key – and it’s time to replace it once time runs out.

 

 

 

These are just a few of the tell-tale signs your battery needs to either be given a once over or replaced entirely. If these situations sound familiar or you suspect something is amiss, visit Dan’s Tire & Auto. We’ll provide the Yarmouth auto care you need and diagnose the issue.
