There is a method of knowing when your car battery is going south on you. To understand your vehicle’s battery know that you are dealing with a lead acid structure in a plastic box. Encased in that battery is a delicate balance of chemicals which are ready to interact and produce electricity. Chances are your battery has a chemical issue.
Here are three tests that need to be done to discover if the battery in your car needs to be replaced:
1. Inspect the battery. Sometimes it is obvious upon inspection. It could be anything from a broken terminal to leakage.
2. Take a voltage reading. If it is reading 0 volts there is a good chance that a short circuit has occurred.
3. Load test the battery. You need a digital volt meter for the test to be accurate.
