What should I do when the dashboard warning light comes out?
Most cars today include an indicator that lights up when the battery reading isn’t good. If Your battery alert comes on. It could be a sign which indicates that the voltage level is below the normal level and the vehicle’s charging system is not functioning properly. We would suggest that you should check if your battery is dead or not as soon as possible.
You can also find some signs your car battery’s dead or about to die.
Your engine cranks, but it doesn’t start.
When you switch on the ignition, your engine cranks slowly but doesn’t start. The purpose of the battery is to crank the engine by providing sufficient power to the starter. When the battery is not healthy, it cannot deliver enough current to start your vehicle. Therefore, this issue causes the crank to turn weakly, and you will hear that failure to crank properly when you approach the starter.
Your engine doesn’t crank or start, and the lights don’t come on.
When the ignition is in the ON position, the battery will operate the radio, windshield wipers, and lights. Basically, any electronic devices in your vehicle. If your lights don’t come on or dim when starting, your battery charge is weak.
In the morning it starts fine, then it won’t start at all after you switch off the car.
Your battery is not charged sufficiently. The battery is what the car uses to provide electrical power to the entire car and electrical components. While the vehicle is running, the battery is charged by the alternator. Unless it’s the problem of the charging system, a dead battery is the most common reason why your car won’t start after you switch off the car.
Cold cranking is extra hard.
Low temperatures can cause your car battery to produce less current, making it extra harder for your engine to start in the morning. The cold can also stop your engine oil from flowing because it becomes thicker and puts more strain on the battery. If the battery is already low on power, this can result in a non-starter.
You’ve jumped it a many times.
Sometimes you had to jump your battery, maybe it’s because the battery was old, or maybe you left your headlights on or your door ajar for a period of time. If you have to jump your vehicle more than three times in two weeks. Please don’t ignore the alarm of your battery. Either you have to replace or you have to improve your driving habits.
