A faulty battery is no small matter. If your car can’t hold energy, you risk being unable to start it, potentially stranding you at some remote site. It is critical to watch for the warning signs of a dying battery and to have the battery tested and replaced accordingly.

The surest sign of a dying battery is slow starting. If it takes ever-increasing amounts of time to activate the engine, your car likely has charge problems. Age is also an important indicator. A battery that is over 4 years old should be tested, even if it seems to work well. This is particularly true if you often take the car for short trips, which fail to recharge the battery and thus strain it.
