When your car won’t start, it’s time to call the Marrero auto care guys at Twin Tire.
Your car wouldn’t start when you got in your car to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. That’s especially frustrating because you just replaced your battery when it wouldn’t start the other day. Now apparently your new battery is also bad.
Not so fast. Yes, you might have gotten hold of a bad battery. But, more likely, there’s something more wrong than your battery.
“When you try to start your car and you hear a clicking sound, that signals your vehicle is dead you are left with several options as to why,” carsdirect.com says.
“Usually, the problem falls into one of two categories: a dead car battery or a loose battery connection. If the battery is dead, it does not mean this is the only problem you now face. Other causes for a car failing to start are a bad starter or relay. If the starter is good, the last likely culprit is a bad alternator. If the alternator is bad, the battery will most likely be dead as well.”
How do you know if your alternator is going bad?
Well, you can have someone watch your headlights while you press the accelerator (with the car in park). If the headlights dim, flicker, or get brighter, you might have a bad alternator. But, really, as carsdirect.com points out, the only way to know for certain is to find a Marrero auto care pro to test your alternator.
