How Can I Tell If I Might Need a New Vehicle Battery?

Flickering Dashboard Lights – As you drive around Colorado, your battery is responsible for keeping everything from your engine to the various electrical systems on your vehicle operational. As such, there can be telltale signs that your battery could be getting weaker. One such area to keep note of is if you ever notice the lights on your dashboard starting to flicker. This could be an early sign that your battery is starting to struggle supplying appropriate power to core systems. 

Taking Longer to Start-Up – If you have noticed that it’s taking longer for your vehicle to start up, that could be a definite sign that your battery is struggling to provide power. As soon as you feel like the time it takes to get your vehicle started is becoming noticeable, consider bringing it in for a service appointment with Emich VW.

Sitting Too Long/Signs of Corrosion – If you haven’t been driving your VW much over the winter, or if you see visible signs of battery corrosion when you look under the hood, don’t hesitate to have us check your battery for you. Both of these situations can be immediate tells that it’s about time to get your battery replaced before the summer heat arrives in Colorado.
