How Often Should I Check My Vehicle Battery?


Getting your vehicle's battery checked periodically is a part of general maintenance, giving you peace of mind that your vehicle will start every time you get into the driver's seat.

How Often To Check A Vehicle's Battery

Before checking your vehicle's battery, you will want to use the owner's manual to find its location. Models that have the start and stop engine function installed have two batteries, making it vital to check both to avoid electrical mishaps in the future. Twice a year is how often you should be checking your car's battery, making it a great idea to have your battery checked alongside your oil changes.

Normal Lifespan Of A Car Battery

Many factors affect the lifespan of a battery, such as operating temperatures, battery quality, driving habits, aftermarket accessories, age, and more. In general, after four years of operation, your battery will begin to degrade in performance, so after that time, you will want to monitor your battery's health closely. Signs that your battery might be getting weaker or needs to be replaced include weak engine cranking, lights dimming randomly, systems not operating correctly, and more.
