Six Signs You May Need a New Car Battery

A dead car battery isn't fun. If you're able to identify the warning signs of a failing car battery, you can eliminate a lot of inconveniences. No one wants to wind up stuck on the side of the road, flagging down strangers for an emergency jump.

You can identify a failing battery by looking for these six signs:

1. The battery compartment is emitting a strong and unpleasant odor.

2. In the morning, when you try to start the car, the engine cranks over slowly.

3. Once the vehicle is running, the headlights appear dim.

4. The check-engine light on the dash of the car was flickering on and off but now remains on all the time.

5. The car horn's volume is lower than it should be.

6. The casing around your car battery has become swollen.

Don't wait for your battery to fail. Contact Dublin Ford in Dublin, GA, and we can set up a battery inspection appointment. Our service technicians will narrow down the problem and replace your battery, if needed.
