Signs that Your Battery is Dying

If you’re starting to notice any of these symptoms occurring on your GMC vehicle, it’s time to bring it into our GMC service center.

  • Slow Engine Crank: When you turn the keys in the ignition, the cranking of the engine is sluggish and takes longer than normal to start.
  • Low Battery Fluid Level: If your car battery’s fluid level is below the lead plates inside the casing, it’s time to get a battery and charging system test.
  • Check Engine Light: An illuminated check engine light can indicate a lot of different things, with one being weak battery power.
  • Battery Leak: If you notice corrosion around the posts, the gunk must be removed by a GMC technician.
  • Old Age: Most car batteries last around four or five years. However, at the very least, you should inspect your car battery at least once per year after year three.
