Signs You Need a Car Battery Service

Chances are good that if you're reading this, it's because your car won't start or is starting to show signs of a dead battery. If you're experiencing any of the following signs of a dead car battery, we suggest you schedule a car battery replacement with our auto shop:

  • Your car won't start, and there's a clicking sound when you turn the key
  • Your car's headlights flicker or dim when you turn the key to "run" position
  • Your car's battery is more than 5 years old
  • Your car takes several cranks to start the engine

During your battery test, our team can also perform a Volvo tire alignment service to ensure you get the most amount of miles out of your new all-season tires.

Car Battery Testing

When you arrive at our Volvo service bay for a car battery replacement, the first thing we'll do is ask a few questions to determine why your battery is dead. The most common reason is you left your lights on, and the battery slowly drained overnight. If the cause isn't something obvious, we'll test your car's battery with a multimeter.

It's important to see if the battery is putting out the correct voltage. We can then charge your car's battery and test the component while under a load. If the battery is generating the correct voltage, the next step is to fully charge it and see if it can maintain a charge.

While your car's battery is charging, it's an excellent time to tackle any other auto repairs your vehicle might need or perform an oil change service.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long should a Volvo battery last?

Three to five years is the common life span for a car battery. However, you can maximize this or even go beyond it by taking your car in for biannual maintenance. This allows experts to check the voltage, clear corrosion from the battery terminals, and examine your supply of battery fluid. Keeping your car away from extreme temperatures when possible is also beneficial.

How do you check a Volvo battery?

If you want to assess the health of a Volvo battery, start by considering your car's behavior: Is the engine having trouble starting? Are you experiencing issues with the electronics (the power windows or headlights)? From there, examine the battery visually for signs of corrosion or general distortion. A smell like rotten eggs can indicate a leak. A voltmeter can be used to check its charge, as well, but do so carefully.

At what point should a car battery be replaced, and how do I choose a car battery?

Obviously misshapen batteries or ones that you have to jump-start too often need to be replaced. If you are experiencing issues with your electronics or with your car starting toward the end of your battery's natural life span, this is also a good indication that you need a new one. Replacement information can be found in your owner's manual or written on the battery itself. You can also ask our Volvo battery service and replacement professionals.
