Taking care of your car battery is one of the most effective ways to ensure your car will get you safely from Point A to Point B. Unfortunately, few of us really pay much attention to the battery even though it manages a massive range of tasks and devices, from starting the engine to powering in-car computers.

After three to five years of everyday use in normal conditions, even when properly cared for, most batteries will become worn down and unreliable. Just as the battery in your computer or smartphone becomes less efficient with every charge, so it is the same with your car’s battery. It deteriorates a little more every time it’s charged up.

Old car batteries can present a number of safety and reliability issues. Dead batteries are one of the top causes for roadside assistance calls, largely because of batteries that are simply too old for the job they’re performing.

Here are three signs that you are heading to a car battery replacement:

  1. The engine cranks or turns over when you turn the key, but it won't start.
  2. The engine does not even crank or turn over and the lights are inoperable.
  3. Your vehicle randomly starts one day then doesn’t the next.

If your car battery is two to three years old and you are starting to notice any of the problems listed above, go ahead and have a car battery replacement. Even though this would be an expense, it is far better than being stranded somewhere and calling a tow truck to take you to the nearest auto shop.

Remember: Maintaining your car battery is just as important as changing the oil, replacing filters and other maintenance items.
