You are on your way to an important meeting, traffic is bad and you are at your wits end. Just when you think things can’t get any worse, your car battery dies, while you are on the highway.
Is there any worse way to find out you need to replace it?
While this is an extreme example, it is important to know when you should replace your battery. Jump starts only work for so long.
According to First National Battery, SA’s leading manufacturer and distributor of automotive and industrial batteries, these are the early signs of battery failure:
•Your engine is slow to start
•The battery light on the panel indicates battery discharge for extended periods
•Your battery seems to lose power quickly in cold or extended starts
•Your headlights dim at idle
If these thing happen it’s time to get your battery checked out.
