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.
