Car batteries are essential to starting a vehicle. Having a battery that is dying will decrease the efficiency of your car. Take the time to acknowledge the importance of your car battery this October, during Battery Safety Month.
Make sure you watch for the warning signs that may indicate your battery is dying.
–> If you have trouble starting your car after it is been sitting for a couple hours, this may be an indicator that your battery is dying.
–>You may notice that your headlights are dimming. The best way to check this is by turning on your lights when it is slightly dark outside. First, turn the lights on when the car is off and check the brightness. Next, look at the lights on with the car on and see if there is any difference in the brightness.
–>One more way you can check your battery is to see if your electrical accessories are running slower than normal. Turn the key in the ignition so the car is not on but your accessories are on. If your windrows roll up and down slowly, or radio is sluggish, this may be an indicator that the battery is dying.
