Is My Car Battery Beginning to Fail?

If you can spot even one of the signs that your car battery is failing, you stand a good chance of getting it replaced before you wind up stuck somewhere with a dead battery in your vehicle. The last thing you want is to turn the key and discover you're out of power.

Here are some of the top warning signs your car battery is failing:

  • Pay close attention to the way the car battery smells. A bad odor can mean battery failure.
  • The casing around the battery has become swollen.
  • You might notice that the horn in your vehicle is quieter than it used to be.
  • When you start the car in the morning, the engine cranks slowly.
  • After the car's running, the headlights are dimmer than they should be.
  • The check engine light on the dashboard is staying on all the time now.

If you still are unsure, come to Donley Ford Lincoln in Mount Vernon, OH. Our service center technicians can inspect your battery, give you recommendations, and replace your faulty battery, if necessary.
