When Should I Replace My BMW's Battery? 

The average lifespan of a car battery is around three to six years but factors such as your driving habits, extreme (hot or cold) temperatures, and corrosion around the battery's terminals can negatively impact your car battery's life. To ensure that you're battery is functioning properly, we recommend paying close attention to the following symptoms that may indicate your battery needs immediate attention:

  • Dim or Flickering Lights: If you accidentally left a light or another accessory on overnight, there's a fair chance that it drained your vehicle's battery. If this is the case, it could cause flickering interior lights, dim headlights, a check engine light on your vehicle's dashboard, or even an entirely dead battery. 

  • Slow Engine Crank: If your engine seems sluggish when you're attempting to start your vehicle, it could be a telltale sign that your battery is beginning to fail. To get a better idea about the current state of your battery's health, visit our BMW of South Albany service center, where we can test your battery's voltage and replace it if need be. 

  • Pungent Odors: Smelling strong, foul odors coming from your vehicle is never a good sign, but it could be a helpful indication that your battery is leaking, which can cause corrosion. If you notice any white, blue, or greenish substances with powdery, granular textures on or around your battery terminals, allow us to inspect your battery immediately!
