It’s Monday and you’re already running late for work. But there’s one problem…when you turn the key in the ignition your car makes a clicking sound. Consequently, your day just got worse because your car battery is dead. Here are a few tips that can help you save money on the cost of car battery replacement.

  • Clean the Terminals

Having a dead battery doesn’t necessarily mean a death sentence. It could just be that the terminals need to be cleaned. Residue on the posts can lead to a bad connection. First, start by removing your battery terminal with the negative cable. Use a wire brush or a professional cleaning product to remove the grime. Then Rinse the battery with water and dry with a rag.

  • Charge the Battery

Car battery testing is an essential part to proactively preventing failure. Slow startings our car not starting could just be a sign that your battery is weak and needs to be charged. Car batteries normally carry a voltage of 12.6. When the engine is running, it should be between 13.7 to 14.7 volts. Not a mechanic? Then, no problem! There are plenty auto retailers, like Auto Zone and O’Reilly’s Auto Parts, that will test and charge your battery for free.

  • Turn in your Battery

There may come a moment when you realize that replacing your battery is your only option. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t save money in the process! Most auto shops love buying your old battery because they can then be recycled. Turning in your old car battery will typically give you a discount on the new one!

Unfortunately, car emergencies happen when you least expect them and usually when pay day is far away. The truth is that in some cases, you won’t need to buy a new battery. Simply following these three tips can prevent you from spending unnecessary money on the cost of car battery replacement.
