Let us help you understand a little bit more about car batteries and the signs that it might be time for a car battery replacement. That little black box under the hood is like the heart of your car--if it is starting to wear out, your vehicle doesn't have the power to start, move, or do anything else. Most vehicles use a “wet-cell” battery, i.e., a plastic cube containing sulfuric acid and lead, with two terminals coming out of the top or the side.

Are you asking, “When should I replace my car battery?” Here are the three big signs that are very obvious to drivers:

You want a safe and reliable vehicle but you wonder when should I get my car serviced? Dig your owner’s manual out of the glove box and read it! All you have to do is follow the factory-recommended maintenance schedule in the service manual for your car. This will help ensure that you are driving as safe as possible, especially as there are still snowy and icy roads.

Many newer cars now have an in-vehicle maintenance reminder system that makes mileage-based schedules obsolete. These reminder systems provide an alert on the dash when it is time for certain services, such oil changes, fluid level checks, component inspections, and other maintenance services. Generally, you should be able to trust these systems to guide your maintenance visits but it would be good to confirm this alert with your own car repair technician.

Older cars still have service intervals based on mileage, usually one for cars driven in “normal” conditions and another for those used in “severe” conditions, which is defined below:

The answer to this question varies according to several factors, such as your style of driving, the weight of your vehicle, the quality of the brake materials, and how you use your vehicle. There is no clear-cut brake replacement schedule that tells you when it’s time to replace your brakes. If you drive only 8,000 miles a year but it's mainly in a big city with lots of stop-and-go driving, you will need to replace brake pads or shoes more often than someone who drives 28,000 miles a year across the flatlands of Nebraska.

So, rely on your ears and the advice of an experienced brake repair technician. Are you starting to hear a screeching sound when you apply the brake pedal? Many cars have built-in wear sensors that scrape against a brake disc when the pads needed replacing. Some vehicles incorporate electronic wear indicators that alert the driver with a dashboard warning light if the pads reach the minimum thickness, but this feature typically comes on expensive luxury cars. If your car does not have a built-in wear sensor, listen for squeaking, squealing, metal-on-metal grinding. Some minor noises can be eliminated by cleaning the brakes, but persistent, prominent noises usually mean parts are worn out and it’s time for a brake replacement.

Wondering how often do you need new brakes? Call the brake specialists at Cannon Auto Repair and ask about a brake replacement.
