When to Replace Your Car Battery in San Luis Obispo, CA
You might forget about your car battery, but did you know? It's responsible for relaying power to practically every electrical component in your ride, from the radio to the tail lights. Without a strong battery, your vehicle won't start or function for very long. If the battery light is illuminated on your dashboard, you'll want to book an appointment for battery replacement in San Luis Obispo soon. However, there are other signs that could clue you into the need for a new car battery.
Consider getting a new battery installed when: the engine lags when starting; the interior lights start to dim or flicker; you hear clicking sounds when turning the key in the ignition; the interior lights start to dim or flicker; and you have to keep jumpstarting your vehicle!
You don't want to put off a battery replacement when it starts to go, since a dead battery could leave you without an operational vehicle. Take action when you notice these issues, and review your owner's manual for manufacturer guidance. An automotive battery generally needs to be swapped for a new one about every three years, but driving style and climate can throw a wrench in this timeframe.
