How to Recognize Your Car Battery is Failing

If you're able to recognize the warning signs that your car battery could be failing, you have a better chance of getting to a service station before your you wind up stuck somewhere flagging down other drivers for a jump.

Here are a few of the top warning signs of a failing car battery:

  • The car battery appears to be swollen and there is a very strong odor coming from the battery compartment.
  • The lights inside the car are flickering, the check-engine light stays lit, and the car headlights are dim when the car's first started.
  • Each morning when you try to start the car, the engine is cranking over very slowly to the point it might even need a jump in order to get running.
