Why Does My Ford Need Car Battery Replacement Service?

Your battery plays a big role in starting your vehicle. When you press the ignition button or turn the key in the ignition, the battery sends a powerful surge of electricity to the starter motor. The starter then turns over the engine, starting it up. Starting your vehicle takes a lot of energy; so, as you drive, the alternator recharges the battery so it can continue to start your vehicle. But over time, the battery will slowly lose its ability to hold as much of a charge. At some point, there will not be enough electricity to send a sufficient jolt to the starter, and you will need a new battery.

What Are the Signs of a Dying Car Battery?

Sometimes, the car battery will show symptoms as it's nearing the end of its lifespan. When you start your Ford in the morning, is it slower to startup? Does it take a few tries to turn on the engine? If so, the battery may be low. Another way you can sometimes check: look at the brightness of the headlights and interior lights before and after you start the engine. If these lights are noticeably weaker before the engine starts, it may be due to the battery. This is because the battery powers the electrical components when the engine is off, but the alternator takes over once the engine is on.

However, these signs can be easy to miss, and the battery doesn't always make it obvious when it's dying. For this reason, we recommend coming to Porter Ford for regular battery inspection service -- at least once a year. It's best done before winter since the cold weather decreases the battery's effectiveness.
