People often ignore issues that occur right at the start of a drive, but this is just when it’s easiest to determine whether your battery might be running low on juice. A dying battery might cause the lights to dim or the engine to kick in slowly. Similar issues can arise when you’re driving. Using multiple systems, such as turning on your headlights while the interior lights and sound system are both on, can result in a quick dimming of the lights.
The battery doesn’t always show physical signs of dying, especially if it is simply running low on power, but a visual inspection is still worth making. Low fluids levels, bulges along the sides of the battery, or corrosion or rust anywhere along the surface should be cause for concern. A smell of rotten eggs would almost certainly indicate a fluid leak. At the end of the day, it’s best to bring your car to Jay Wolfe Toyota of West County’s Service Center if you think you might need your battery replaced or if you can’t remember the last time you fitted a new battery. Jay Wolfe Toyota of West County can provide everything you need.
