Signs of battery failure
Unfortunately, many battery failures come without a great deal of warning. However, in some cases, you may experience a slow crank or no-crank condition when starting your car. Your vehicle may require a jumpstart, or some components in your car (like your headlights or stereo) may not work properly. Another symptom to watch out for is corrosion on the battery terminals, which is usually a white or greenish buildup.
If your vehicle is displaying any of the signs above, your battery needs to be tested. Also if your vehicle’s battery is dead, or will no longer hold a charge, we can quickly and affordably replace it, and we’ll take care of recycling it, too.

If you hear one loud click, that’s more likely the cause of a bad starter. In either case, it’s wise to book a service appointment with to have the problem diagnosed and corrected.
If your lights are turning on, then your car battery probably isn’t dead—but it may be on its way out. If those lights are dimmer than usual, that’s a telltale sign of pending battery failure.
