Signs I May Need a New Car Battery
There’s nothing worse than getting in your car to go to work or school and finding that your car battery is dead. Also, driving in winter on snow or ice-covered roads or when the weather presents low visibility is the worst time to get stranded with a dead car battery. Are there signs your car gives that lets you know your battery is dying? How can you prevent your car battery from dying unexpectedly?
