Vehicle owners must keep batteries clean and change them at the recommended time to avoid getting stranded on the side of the road. If you have battery issues, your car may be kind enough to give you some warnings. Watch out for these three warning signs of a bad car battery and act accordingly if you notice them

Trouble Starting Car 

One of the biggest tell-tale signs that you need a car battery replacement is when your battery keeps dying. You may come home one day and then need a jump after only letting your car sit overnight. Alternator problems may exhibit the same symptoms, so you need your components tested to be sure.

Dim Lights

Another common sign that you may need a car battery replacement is dim headlights. Bad batteries often can't keep all of the accessories and components juiced up enough to run them properly. Therefore, you may notice dim lights, a quirky radio, slow rolling power windows and countless other issues. They are all warning signs of a bad car battery.

Funny Smells

Finally, the way your car smells can tell you a lot about the condition of the battery. You may need a new car battery if you're getting somewhat of a raw egg smell or something similar. It usually means that your battery has a dead cell. You'll need to take care of that as quickly as possible so that it doesn't ruin any of your other components.

If you notice any of the above-mentioned symptoms, you need to have someone inspect your battery, service it, and replace it if necessary. It's better to take care of the issue now than it is to get stuck on the side of the road with no one to assist, especially in the middle of winter.
