Is my Car Battery dead?


Is my Car Battery dead?

The most important part of your car is the battery. If the battery goes flat or dead then the vehicle will no longer function. Mainly, it is highly likely that there is a problem with the battery, if you are struggling to start your car.

A working car battery recharges itself when you drive, however, if your battery is faulty or worn out, it will not be able to retain its charge and eventually ending up dying. 

Why is my Car Battery dead?
On an average, a car battery needs to be replaced every 3-5 years. An old car battery is unlikely to hold charge. Different temperature, cold or hot also affects the vehicle battery, which would make it more difficult to start your vehicle. Batteries are also likely to be flattened if they are old, worn-out and if there is visible damage to the battery such as cracking, or when you notice the electrolyte in the battery bubbling. In such kind of situations, it is recommended to get the battery replaced as soon as possible to prevent damaging the vehicle.

A useful tip: Leaving the interior light on in your car overnight can flatten a battery. So make sure that's not the case. However, whatever the reason for your dead battery, something like a battery booster, a time consuming recharge, or a much needed boost using jump leads are your primary essential options for getting on the vehicle on road again.
