Did you know that one of the most common reasons for roadside assistance calls is a dead battery? That little black box under the hood is like the heart of your car--if it is starting to wear out, your vehicle doesn't have the power to start, move, or power any of the electrical accessories.

So when should a car battery be replaced, you ask? Under normal driving conditions, after just three years, car batteries can become worn down and inefficient. A car battery works just like a cell-phone battery--with every charge, it becomes less efficient. After four or five years, your battery may be almost completely unreliable.

It’s probably time for a car battery replacement if you are noticing any of the signs below:

  1. The engine won’t start even though you hear it cranking.
  2. You turn the key in the starter but nothing happens.
  3. Your vehicle may start randomly one day and not the next.

Many new cars have powerful computers that are operating all the time, even when the vehicle is parked and switched off, drawing energy from the battery at a slow, steady rate. Weak batteries will have a negative effect on the auto electrical system, such as headlights, power windows, radio, etc. Also, new cars with stop-start technology could also be negatively affected as engines that are designed to automatically switch off when at a standstill place a greater strain on batteries than standard vehicles.

Remember: Add your car battery to your maintenance checklist, just like changing the oil, air filter, tires rotation, and windshield wipers.

If you are wondering when should a car battery be replaced, contact our ASE Certified technicians at Phil’s Service for more information about a car battery replacement and schedule an appointment.
