Summer Car Battery Testing/Services
Your car's battery is truly the heart of your vehicle, giving it the get up and go it needs. So when you have an unhealthy battery supported by unheathy electrical systems, your car is not going to go anywhere. You car's battery and electrical system work as a team, and you cannot have one without the other. You need the battery to kick-start the engine and electronics, and the electronics to keep the engine running and the battery charged. It's a never ending cycle of dependence. So, to help keep your vehicle on the road and in good condition you should keep your battery in the best working order by having it tested and replaced as needed.
You should have your battery replaced or at least checked every three years, but there are warning signs that your car battery is about to die or already dead:
- Engine cranks but doesn't start
- One day it starts fine, the next day it won't
- No crank, no start, no lights
- Cold cranking is hard work
- You've jumped it a lot already
Over time, a battery loses its capacity or ability to hold a charge. One day, a weak battery will not be able to start your car. Often, this happens when the weather gets cold. When the battery is low on charge, a car will need to be boosted to start. So, do not end up stranded on the side of the road due to a bad battery, if you suspect that your vehicle's battery needs tested or replaced then bring it to a reputable service station like the one at Benny Boyd Auto of Andrews, TX to get the help you need.
