If you aren't sure when the last time was that you got a new car battery, it's important to test it if you are having problems. Your battery is only going to last 3 to 5 years and will show signs of problems before it dies completely.

Try turning on your headlights, and wait for ten minutes. Then turn on your vehicle and check to see if the headlights dim in the process. If your battery is strong, there should be no change in your headlights. If your headlights go dim, the battery probably needs to be replaced.

If you hear clicking sounds when you turn on your vehicle, this further indicates a problem with your battery. If you are driving and don't seem to have enough power, the battery may need to be replaced. If your lights aren't bright enough, this is another sign there is an issue with your battery.

If you need a new battery, stop by our service center here at Burdick BMW in Cicero, NY.
