Your car's battery takes on a lot of jobs. It powers a number of electrical systems, from headlights to the car alarm and everything in-between. It also provides the power to start your engine. It wouldn't be a stretch, in fact, to say that the battery is one of the most important parts of a car. So when it fails, it can cause a lot of problems for you and your car.

Luckily, there are a some early warning signs you can look for to tell you when your battery might be in dire straights:

  • The engine struggles to turn over when you start the car.
  • The horn seems quieter and the headlights weaker than they should be.
  • The interior electronics are more sluggish than usual.
  • The battery's case appears swollen and smells awful.

If you notice any of these issues, it may be time to replace your battery. Come down to Faith's Ford in Brattleboro, VT, and our service center can help you get everything back in working order.
