What Can Cause a Battery to Fail?
There are a few different reasons why most batteries fail. Usually, a dead battery is a result of its old age. Most batteries can’t last more than a few years, which is why it’s important to get yours checked if it’s more than a couple of years old. It’s also possible for a battery to fail as a result of an issue with the alternator. This is usually one of the first things a technician will check during a battery inspection. If the problem still hasn’t been located, they’ll check for corrosion around the terminals, lights that have been left on, a defective fuse, or a defective serpentine belt.
When to Schedule Battery Service
If you’d like to know how often your vehicle needs battery service, check-in with your owner’s manual or ask one of our highly trained technicians at Glendale INFINITI. We’ll help you figure out a good maintenance schedule for your vehicle based on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Keep in mind that you should schedule an inspection if you notice any problem or change with your vehicle. Now, let’s go over the different signs of a battery problem and how you can know it’s time to schedule battery service.
- Your vehicle won’t start, and you hear a rapid clicking noise when you try to crank the engine
- A voltmeter test shows low voltage results
- Even after jump-starting your vehicle, the battery won’t accept the charge
- Your battery keeps failing even after multiple jump-starts

Routine battery checks are the best way to stay informed about the condition of your battery. If you notice any of these signs or it’s been a while since you’ve had your battery checked, it’s a good idea to schedule battery service as soon as you can.
