Here are some Warning Signs that it’s time to replace your car battery:

  • Rotten egg smell – indicates an old or overcharged battery. Your battery is probably nearing the end of its functional life.
  • Engine slow to turn over – Accessories failing, or performing at reduced capacity are other signs of an aging battery.
  • Lights – are they Dim or flickering? If yes, it can mean a weakening battery and/or charging system.
  • Battery’s last replacement date? If  you can’t remember… it’s probably been too long. The average battery life in today’s vehicles is typically 3-5 years, depending on geographic location.
