There are a variety of factors which play a role in the lifespan of your battery. Driving in extreme temperatures such as scorching heat or frigid winter weather can take a toll on your battery's health. If you're in a hotter climate, it's considered a good idea to have your battery inspected after approximately two years of ownership. For those in colder climates, you're able to wait four years to test the performance. Parking your care for extended period of time without starting it and taking several short trips throughout your commute can also lower battery performance.

How to Tell If You Need a New Car Battery

When the battery fails in your vehicle, the first thing that crosses your mind is "If I only knew sooner". Before your battery leaves you stranded, take some time to learn the common symptoms or indications that your battery may need some attention.

Delayed Engine Crank

Delayed Engine Crank

When you turn the key in your ignition, are you noticing that the "cranking" aspect of the engine is delayed and taking longer than normal to finally start? When accompanied by a weak "rur rur rur" sound, this is a common sign that your battery is getting too weak to start your car.

Low Fluid Level

Low Fluid Level

Typically located on the top or side of the casing of your battery, a small window allows you to view the fluid level contained inside. In the event that this fluid level has dropped below the lead plates found inside, you should consider having your battery and charging system inspected.

Check Battery Light Is On

Once you see the check battery icon appear on the dashboard of your vehicle, this would indicate that there's an issue with your battery or charging system. We recommend having our factory-trained Ford technicians diagnose your vehicle.
