When Should I Replace My Car Battery? 

The average lifespan of a car battery is around three to six years but many factors such as driving habits, seasonal challenges, extreme temperatures, and corrosion can negatively impact your car battery's life. To ensure that you're battery is functioning properly, we recommend paying close attention to the following symptoms that may indicate your battery needs attention:

  • Slow Engine Crank: Does your engine seem sluggish when attempting to start? If so, this could be a sign that your battery is beginning to fail, so be sure to pick up a new battery here at our Northway Toyota parts center or schedule a service appointment with us as soon as possible!
  • Flicking or Dim Lights: Batteries can often be drained by leaving a light or another accessory on overnight. Stay vigilant for flicking interior lights, dim headlights, or even a check engine light on your vehicle's dashboard so you can avoid the possibility of being left stranded somewhere after you've shut your car off. 
  • Pungent Odors: Smelling strong, foul odors coming from your vehicle is never a good sign, but it could be a helpful indication that your battery is leaking, which can cause corrosion. If you notice any white, blue, or greenish substances with powdery, granular textures on or around your battery terminals, allow us to inspect your battery immediately!
