Fast Car Battery Replacement Services in Dutchess County

It takes quite a bit of power to start your car, and your car’s battery is responsible for producing that power. When you first put your key in your car or truck’s ignition and turn it, the battery is what starts the engine. Once a car is started, that is when the alternator steps in and keeps the car battery going. It does this by replacing the power that is used to start your engine and run the vehicle’s electronic accessories. This is why you will most likely notice that the engine begins cranks more slowly when you are in need of a battery replacement or repair.

Is My Car Battery Dying? Here are 5 Warning Signs.

Is My Car Battery Dying? 5 Warning Signs.

1. The Engine Cranks the Car Doesn’t Start

If your engine cranks or turns over when you turn the key, but doesn’t start, the most likely culprit is your battery. It could be your starter, it may even be something else, but 95% of the time, it's really your battery.

2. No Crank, No Start, and No Lights

This situation is not difficult to diagnose, and is an even stronger indicator that your battery is at fault. Your battery powers all of the accessories and lights in your car, especially when the alternator isn’t running. If your car seems to be completely void life, then your battery is the first thing you should be looking at.

3. One Day It Starts Fine, the Next Day It Won't

If starting is a recurrent problem for you, it's a sign that either 1) your battery terminals are loose, broken, corroded, or calcified or 2) your power is being drained by some component that's on when it's supposed to be off, or by a wire that’s touching something it shouldn’t.

4. Cold Cranking Is Hard Work

When you look at your battery, somewhere on it you will find a label with a number for "Cold Cranking Amps.” Those amps are responsible for giving your engine the energy it needs to get started the first time of the day, generally referred to as "cold cranking.”

5. You've Already Jumped it Plenty of Times.

If you have to jump your vehicle more than three times in a single week, it's time to replace your battery.
