The most common sign of starting and charging system problems or a dead battery is a vehicle that fails to start. The regular life of a vehicle’s battery is between 3-5 years. Your vehicle’s battery will typically work properly without excessive maintenance unless there is a problem with your starting and charging system. A problem with your starting and charging system can prevent the battery from receiving the proper charge and will malfunction. We recommend a quick battery and charging system test with each service to ensure that all systems are working correctly. At Big Apple Automotive, our ASE certified technicians are experiencing working with batteries and charging systems on all makes and models of vehicles. 

Signs your battery is failing or a problem with your starting and charging system:

  • Vehicle cranks slowly
  • Battery light comes on
  • Car won’t start or stops unexpectedly while driving
  • Dashboard lights are dimmer than usual

If you are experiencing any of the issues above, bring your vehicle to Big Apple Automotive. Our expert mechanics will run accurate diagnostics on your charging system and battery to determine the cause of the issue. We will get you back on the road quickly and safely.
