When It Is Time To Replace The Battery?

- Apr 06, 2018-

There may be little or no warning, however, if any of the following happens, your battery should be tested immediately:

  • Motor has difficulty cranking over.

  • Battery indicator light on the instrument panel stays lit for extended periods after starting

  • Headlights dim when the engine is idling, or  

  • Clock starts to lose time after the vehicle sits unused for several days 

All of the symptoms described above and also be attributed to a discharged battery or charging system problems.

Note: To maximize the vehicle’s battery/charging system service life and performance, Interstate Batteries recommends having your vehicle battery tested at least semiannually or every time the oil is changed.
