When a battery fails it’s a serious problem that needs immediate attention. Unfortunately, this is usually not at a convenient time or place. So you may be wondering just why does your car battery keep dying? Have your battery inspected and the charge checked so you will know if it’s time for a car battery replacement. An inspection of your car battery should be on your maintenance checklist, just like changing the oil, air filter, tires rotation, and windshield wipers.

Here are a few things to check if you are having starting problems:

  1. The headlights or dome lights were left on. This will drain a battery if left on overnight.
  2. Battery terminals and cables may be loose, broken, corroded, or calcified,
  3. Extremely hot or cold temperatures. If your battery is starting to fail, this will accelerate the problem.
  4. The fluid level in the terminals may be too low,
  5. An electrical current is drawing power from the battery even when the car is turned off. Even small drains, like the memory function in your car radio, may kill a weak battery.
  6. The charging system is going bad. This may include the starter or the alternator. 


Some of these problems are enough to kill a battery on their own, while others are usually coupled with a battery that is already weak or on its last legs.
