It can be really disheartening when you try to turn on your car in the morning and it is struggling to start. You never want to have that feeling that you are going to be stranded somewhere because of a dead battery.
Winter Battery Concerns
Though there are numerous reasons why your car may be struggling to start (spark plugs, alternator, engine problems, cooling system problems, starter, etc.), a weak battery is one of the most common issues. Especially during cold winter months, the battery is put through a lot of extra strain. It gets really cold when the vehicle isn't running for awhile, and that causes it to lose its charge faster.
Keeping Your Car Battery Healthy
You need a healthy battery to make the car run and to control all your electronic components. You may notice that your headlights or interior lights are starting to dim or flicker. This is a clear sign of a dying battery, or possibly wiring issues. There are other signs you can look for to know if your battery is getting weak. If you are worried that your battery is losing its power, you don't want to take any chances.
Battery Test and Electronic System Inspection
