Ensure Your Car Battery’s Survival

The car battery gives your vehicle life, but can also take it away should it have a low charge. Before replacing it, here are handy tips on how to check your battery’s remaining charge.

When you’re ready, make sure the car and all the lights on the inside are turned off. Grab a voltmeter and attach the red clamp to the battery’s positive terminal. Then, connect the black clamp to the battery’s negative terminal. A safe battery will accept and hold a charge, is under four years old, and has a voltage of 12.4 or above. An unsafe battery will not accept or hold a charge, cannot produce adequate amperage, and is under 12 volts.
