The age-old question with many answers. What can cause a dead battery? The obvious is leaving a light on in the car for an extended period of time. If it’s a one-off for one night, the battery shouldn’t drain too much, but you also have to factor in the health and age of it as well. Cold weather is another culprit of draining batteries because of how much harder the battery has to work to warm up along with the rest of your car.
Standard battery warranties last about three years, which is conveniently the amount of time a battery is able to last before you start to encounter issues. At the three-year battery mark, which is clearly marked on your battery, you should have it examined by a professional who can catch even the most minor, potential battery issues.
Along with the information above, here are some easy-to-identify signs that your car battery is dying and may need to be replaced sooner rather than later.
