Testing Your Battery: Important Maintenance for Your Peace of Mind

Maintaining a healthy car battery ensures you and your family are safe on the road. Vehicle batteries should be checked 1-2 times a year, especially if it is more than 3 years old. Most batteries last about 5 years, so as it ages, regular testing helps eliminate surprises!

Factors Impacting Your Battery Health Include:

  • The age of the battery. Batteries gradually deteriorate until they can no longer provide enough power to start an engine. This wear time could take three to five years.
  • Vehicle usage pattern. Batteries in cars driven mostly on short trips may not fully recharge and batteries in vehicles parked for extended periods naturally self-discharge.
  • The climate. Heat facilitates the chemical reaction car batteries use to generate electricity, but it also increases the rate of battery degradation. In cooler climates, a battery may last five years or longer, but in hot locales, a car battery will typically last approximately three years.

AAA Battery Service counts as one of your Roadside Assistance calls – though the call is not counted when you purchase a new AAA Battery!

Signs Your Battery is Weak

Not sure if you need a new battery? Look for these signs and schedule with a AAA technician for testing if you have concerns.

  • When starting your car, your engine cranks slowly or the engine has trouble “turning over.”
  • The Battery/Charging warning lamp illuminates on the dashboard.
  • In older model cars, dim incandescent headlights, especially when the car is idling.
  • Quality of battery - The length of the battery’s warranty and free replacement period is usually a good indication of the battery’s quality.

Choose AAA Mobile Battery Service - It’s part of your membership!

We care about your safety before you have a roadside emergency. This included service helps you be prepared on the road and avoid surprises. Besides, if you do this on your own, you could avoid these additional hassles and costs:

  • Installation of the battery - Installation of the battery is sometimes a separate cost, and without a mobile service you have to go to a shop to have it done.
  • Testing your battery, starting and charging system - There sometimes can be additional charges to determine the state of your battery, starting and charging system.
  • Battery Recycling – There may be a “core” charge to dispose of the battery properly.

Battery Basics

The life expectancy of the average vehicle battery is three to five years. A failing battery can cause a vehicle's engine to turn over slowly. Key factors that affect a battery's performance are age, usage, and weather.

Increased usage of computer technology in today's automobiles requires professionally trained technicians to service electrical components. "Bargain" batteries often do not meet manufacturer's specifications for that particular vehicle. An under-rated battery could harm other electrical components in the vehicle. Battery freshness is critical.


Fresh: In the automotive business, a new battery rolling off the line and out to consumers is referred to as being “fresh.” We can assure you that with the purchase of a AAA battery, you now have one of the freshest batteries available in your vehicle. This high-quality product has been thoroughly tested. But just in case your battery should ever act, well, not so fresh, it comes backed by a 3-year, free-replacement warranty valid throughout North America. That means if your battery should ever quit working due to defects in the next three years, a certified dealer of AAA batteries will install a brand new one for you at no charge.

Note: Battery replacement is not always necessary. For example, leaving your lights on will drain your battery, but a boost or jump-start can quickly and reliably get you moving again.

Re-Fresh: What happens to your old battery? You might say we send it away to be re-freshed. AAA Battery Service takes special care to ensure your old battery is removed, handled and recycled in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Ninety-eight percent of it will be recycled into new products.
