Time for a new car battery? Here is how to know

 Do not get stuck on the side of the road when you can handle it least, thinking, “If only I’d known sooner.” Many of us have been there before, and never want to be again. Do you know what signs to be on the lookout for, indicating that you should be shopping around for new car batteries for sale?

You can avoid being blindsided by a flat battery. Let us take a look at a few signs your car may be in need of a new battery.

Slow Engine Crank – When you try and start your car, but the engine’s cranking is sluggish, and takes a little longer than usual to start, it could be a sign that the battery is on its way out.

Flashing Engine Light – Some cars’ computer systems are intelligent enough to detect a voltage drop in a battery and you may be alerted via a message on the dashboard or an occasionally blinking “Check Engine” light. Do not ignore it.

Low Battery Fluid Level – Car batteries usually have a part of the casing that allows you to see its fluid level. If the fluid level is below the recommended limit, it will not operate as it should. Replenish the battery fluid with distilled water. If it is a sealed battery, replace it.
