Your car’s battery plays an important role in keeping your car running. Sometimes, something as simple as rusty or corroded battery posts can make the battery short out or your car not start. If any of the cables are loose, that can also cause a problem. Whether you do it yourself or bring it to Tyler Chevrolet in Niles, MI for service, it’s important to have the battery inspected and/or serviced regularly.

Regardless of how well you take care of your battery, eventually, it will need replacement. While some car owners replace the battery themselves, others bring their vehicle to the dealership and have the work done there. Here are some signs your battery needs replacement.

  • The battery is old.
  • The engine starts slowly.
  • The connectors are corroded.
  • The check engine light is on.
  • The car exhibits electrical issues and dim lights.
  • The battery has a bad smell.
  • The battery case is in bad shape.
