The main function of a car battery is to start your car. It is very important to keep a check on the battery as usually, it lasts for three years in a car but it depends on the car’s usage and the conditions to check for a battery change.

The following are some of the signs that will indicate you that there is a need car battery replacement :

  • Old Battery

If your battery is a few years old, it might be coming to the end of its life span. As all parts of cars wear and tear over time, same way batteries need to be checked and changed after a certain period. You can check for a round sticker that has a month and year mentioned on your battery if you are not aware when battery was last replaced.

  • Engine takes a long time to start

Whenever you start your car, the engine will take a little bit longer than normal to start as the components inside the battery have been worn out and become less effective. It is a sign that your battery needs to be replaced or recharged.

  • Headlights become dim

If the car battery is losing its charge, it will become difficult to use the headlights in their full capacity as battery powers all the electronics in your vehicle. This is one major indication that your car will give you when it is time to replace your car’s batteries.

When your car’s battery is overcharged, it can get swollen and become a hazard.  Excessive heat causes your battery to be swollen and decreases its life. So when you see swelling of a battery you need to take your car to the auto service workshop.
