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.
