How to Test Your Car Battery

Your battery is a vital part of your car, powering the various electrical systems you rely on. But how do you know when it needs to be replaced?

Before testing your battery, you should make sure that the ignition key and lights are off, and wear the proper protective equipment as well.

A voltmeter lets you measure the charge of your battery and comes in both analog and digital models. The positive and negative leads will be attached to their respective terminals.

A voltage of 12.6+ will typically mean a full charge, whereas a voltage of 12+ or lower may mean that your battery needs to be replaced.

We invite you to visit our team here at Parks Lincoln of Tampa in Tampa, FL when your battery needs to be replaced, and are happy to assist you with servicing your vehicle.
