Common Car Battery Questions
When to Replace Your Car Battery
The simple answer is that there is no definite lifespan for your car battery because so many things can affect it.
Some will last for over five years, while others need to be replaced after only three. How long it lasts has everything to do with how you drive and where you live.
Heat can shorten the lifespan of your battery. If you live in an area where the climate is warm all year, it will need to be replaced sooner. In cold weather a battery can last a lot longer.
The biggest thing that determines how long your battery lasts is your driving habits. If you almost never use your car or you only take short trips that last just a few minutes, your battery life is going to go down. Frequent use and taking drives longer than a half hour are good for your keeping your battery healthy.
Whether your battery has been in place for a few years or it’s brand new, one way to drain it quickly is by leaving the electrical system on when the engine is off. Something like leaving the key partially turned in the ignition or leaving an interior light on overnight can completely drain your battery in a matter of hours.
Signs Your Car Battery Needs to Be Replaced
When you think of a dead battery, the first thing that comes to mind is not being able to start your car. But there are some warning signs before it gets to that point.
If you try to start the car and the ignition takes longer to turn over or the crank sounds slower, that’s a warning sign. Another thing to look for is if your lights aren’t as bright. A problem with your electrical system can cause both your interior and exterior lights to appear faint.
Most vehicles also have some form of dashboard warning light that will either say CHECK ENGINE or look just like your battery.
Each of these could also mean that there’s an issue with the connections in your electrical system or your alternator, but it’s a good idea to get service right away regardless.
One way to make sure that your battery is the issue is to look at it. If it has any signs of damage like cracks or is leaking battery fluid, you’ll know to get a replacement right away.

I brought my car in for a service repair. My tech was Jesse. I was very concerned about getting my car repaired. After speaking with him, he put my mind at ease. His customer service skills are awesome!

Multiple car owner
Easiest car purchasing process that I have ever had. 57 years old and have purchased many cars in my life. Great folks and no negatives during the deal.
I purchased a 2020 Nissan Pathfinder. Mr Middleton was a HUGE help and made sure to take his time and explain everything to me. The sales manager was AMAZING going out of his way to get the color I wanted. Even the finance manager took the time to help me get a lower finance rate. Everyone was so helpful during this process. I’ll definitely be back in the future.
Customer: Trendy Things
Best car dealership ever!
I can bring my car in early, wait in a comfortable seating area, greated by service writers and salesman by name and get high speed internet and fresh coffee while I wait. I have never had any surprise charges or paid for work that I did not approve of in advance. We have purchased three new Nissans at Mobile Nissan and bring my cars back for regular service including tire replacement. Terry And Brian are my ATeam.
