  • How long does a battery last? Car batteries usually last for somewhere between three and five years, but we usually recommend replacing somewhere closer to three so that you don't get left with a dead battery.
  • How do I know if my battery is dying? Your battery can show signs that it is on its way out, which include corrosion around the terminals, dim lights, a slow crank when you use the ignition, or needing multiple tries to turn your car on.
  • What shortens the life of my battery? Batteries get drained by taking short drives, leaving electronics on, and by sitting off for a long time in cold weather.
