If you’re having trouble starting your vehicle, your vehicle’s battery may be dead or there may be a problem with your vehicle’s starting or charging system. A dead battery will prevent your vehicle from starting, and you may also notice that your dashboard lights, radio, and power windows aren’t working.
The regular life of a battery is typically 3-5 years and should work normally without much maintenance. However, leaving a light on in your vehicle overnight can quickly cause a working battery to lose charge. Another reason your battery may die is due to a faulty charging system. At Amazing Auto Repair and Transmission in Austin, TX, our certified technicians can perform a simple battery and charging system test to determine if the battery is dead and can’t hold a charge or if there is a problem with the charging or starting system.
A faulty alternator can also cause your battery to die. The alternator recycles energy throughout your vehicle as you drive to help power the battery. An issue with the starting and charging system or the alternator can prevent your car from starting.
