Difficulty turning on the car

If the car is showing signs of a difficult start, or if it takes so much time to start, then there is a great possibility that your car is having an issue. One of the main purposes of the battery is to help to start the ignition of the car engine. It is the primary source of power to start the engine. If the battery is not doing well or cannot serve the energy the car needs, it’s high time that you changed it.

Poor performance in colder weather

If the car takes much time to start in colder weather, then this is a clear sign that your car engine is not up to the position where it used to be. In colder weather, it is hard for any engine to work as fast. But it should not be a big issue for a healthy and perfect battery. When your car battery gets old or needs a replacement, it will show signs of a slow start in winter.

Electric malfunction

If the doors of the car are not locking properly, or the button for the window is not smooth as it used to be, there is a higher chance that the car battery has deteriorated. The functions solely controlled by the battery will ultimately show signs of slowing down and at that time you need to change it.
