3 Signs the Battery Has an Issue
The battery is a very important part of your vehicle. If the battery is in poor condition, the vehicle cannot start or operate. The battery is dependent on three main components in order to work properly. The alternator, starter, and battery terminals should all be inspected thoroughly to help ensure it is working properly.
If the engine of your vehicle is turning over but does not start, it is more than likely the battery. This is more often than not mistaken for a bad starter or alternator problem. Most of the time is the battery that does not have enough volts to have the vehicle run efficiently. Try to use jumper cables to get the vehicle running again. Make sure to have the engine run at least thirty minutes to help the battery be effective.
If you notice there are no lights or the radio does not work, it could indicate that the battery is going dead. It could also be a combination problem of the battery and the alternator of your vehicle. Anytime an electrical device is not operating the way it should, it can be the sign of a battery issue.
Another sign of an issue with the battery is if your vehicle starts fine one time, but fails the next time. It can mean that the battery terminals are loose, broken, or corroded. Make sure the battery is clear of any debris and build-up. It is also important to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. This can help you to have a safe and reliable vehicle.
