What Does a Car Battery Do?

Before you can determine when a car battery needs to be replaced, you should understand its function. A battery is the device that translates chemical energy into electricity. It’s composed of cells, which contain the actual energy. The energy is then transformed into electrical energy on command.

In the simplest terms, a battery is like your vehicle’s heart, always pumping life through it. Just like how you won’t have life without your heart, a car won’t run without a battery. Because the battery is closely tied to the car’s starting and charging systems, it’s needs to always function properly. Once the battery starts to weaken, it’ll have to be replaced before it dies completely.

How Do I Know When the Battery Is Failing?

Car batteries usually last about four years. However, that’s not a set number, as different factors can determine when a new battery is needed.

There are several warning signs that can help determine when a battery is on the way out. They include…

  • Swelling battery case: The battery case can swell from excessive heat. When this occurs, it’ll decrease the battery’s life.
  • Slow turnover: If you notice the engine taking a long time to turnover and catch, then the battery may be dying.
  • Dim headlights: When headlights aren’t getting the power that they need to be bright, it usually means there’s an issue with the car battery.
  • Check engine or battery light: When this light appears on your dash, it could mean different things. For one, it could mean your battery is weak. However, it could also mean there’s an issue with the alternator or other part of the charging or electrical system. No matter what, your car will have to get looked at as soon as possible.
