How You Can Test Your Car Battery

The last thing you want to deal with is a dead car battery. Before you panic and ask someone for a jump, you need to test the battery to see if that’s actually the problem. If you hear a clicking when you turn your ignition, it’s not always the fault of the battery.

A digital multimeter can be attached to your battery to tell you everything you need to know. Be sure the vehicle is off. The black lead on the multimeter should touch the negative battery cable and the red lead should touch the positive cable. Set the meter to DC volts. If it reads 12.45 volts or higher, it’s charged sufficiently.

You need to be sure that your vehicle is running properly in Midlothian. If your battery is dead or your ignition isn’t turning over for another reason, schedule an appointment with us at Hyman Bros. Kia. Our service center technicians can repair your vehicle.
