Test Your Car Battery to Stay Safe on the Road

Your car's battery will last about 4 years, but eventually will need to be replaced. If you are having problems with the battery and need to jump start your car frequently, it's time to test the voltage of your battery. Using a voltmeter, you can test your battery to see if you need a new one.

Using the voltmeter, first make sure your car is completely off, including the lights. Attach the red terminal to the voltmeter first, then the black terminal. Make sure you wear protective rubber gloves and goggles to avoid getting hurt from battery acid. If your battery is less than 12.4 volts, you will need a replacement.

Bring your car to our service center at Philpott Pre-Owned Super Center and get a new battery installed when your battery charge is low. Prevent getting stuck on the side of the road with a dead battery by getting yours changed today.
