When your car battery dies, there are a few things you can do to get it started again. First, try jump starting your car with a jumper cable. If that doesn’t work, you can try charging the battery with a battery charger. Finally, if all else fails, you can replace the battery with a new one.
If your vehicle or battery is new, it might be worth bringing your car into the shop to have a mechanic run a battery test to determine if it has an internal defect. If you purchased the battery from Big A Auto, the battery may be under warranty.
Another potential cause of a dead car battery is age. Most car batteries utilize lead-acid, multi-cell batteries. As your battery ages, sulfate builds up which prevents the battery from producing the power needed to start. If your car’s battery is between 2-5 years old, this could be the problem, and it might be time for a replacement.
