Is My Battery Dead?

If your car isn't starting and a jump start hasn't helped, it may be the battery. Often battery and starter problems are confused, but you can usually tell if it's the battery when:

  • The engine turns but the car doesn't start.
  • The lights are not turning on and the engine isn't turning over.
  • You've experienced recent signs like dim headlights or a slow turning engine.

What Is Parasitic Drain on a Car Battery?

Parasitic drain means that an accessory, short circuit or another culprit is draining your battery much faster than it should. A professional can diagnose the problem to identify where the parasitic drain is coming from.

My Car Battery Is Swollen

When it looks like your car battery is bloated, it is probably due to being overheated, whether from outside temperatures or an electrical issue. Excessively cold temperatures can also cause swelling in some cases. If you notice even a small amount of bulging, bring your vehicle in for a car battery replacement in Phoenix right away.
