When Should I Replace My Cars Battery?

To know when it's time to replace your vehicle's battery, there are a few signs Westbrook drivers can look out for.

Dim Headlights: One sign that your battery may need to be replaced is if your headlights dim when you are idle but brighten up when you begin moving.

Slow Moving Windows: Similar to the headlights, if you notice that your windows are slow to move while your vehicle is still, but work fine when moving, then this could be an indicaton of a bad battery.

Battery Corrosion: An obvious sign Saco residents should be aware of is if there is corrosion around the battery. When you open the hood, if you find that the vehicle's battery has corrosion and fluid leakage, then this is good time to replace the battery.
