Hopefully, you’ve never experienced a dead car battery in the middle of a cold Danbury, CT winter. Though if you have, you know how important it is to make sure your car battery is in good condition.

The car battery is one of the most important parts of your vehicle, as it is responsible for providing power to all the electrical components of your car. Without the battery, your car wouldn’t start! In the winter months, colder temperatures can dramatically affect your battery’s ability to supply the necessary power to your car.

In order to make sure your car battery is working to the best of its ability, it is important to make sure the battery terminals are free from corrosion and that the battery isn’t on its last legs. An aging or weak battery can cause issues all year long, but you may have more problems in the winter due to colder temperatures.

If you’re unsure if you need a new battery, there are a few signs that a replacement may be needed. Your vehicle being slow or sluggish to start, low battery fluid, and a swollen battery case are all indicators that you may need a new battery. Batteries usually have a lifespan of three to five years.
