The User-Friendly Guide to Testing Your Car's Battery

Testing your car's battery regularly is a simple way to avoid problems down the road in Yorkville, NY. However, if your idea of testing a battery is wetting your finger and touching the battery terminals, you should definitely keep reading this article. Here's how we at Carbone Subaru of Utica would prefer that you test your battery to keep your health and your fingers intact.

To perform this test, you'll need a voltmeter. If you don't have one and can't borrow one, you can purchase one for a few dollars from just about any store. Next, turn off your vehicle and attach the voltmeter to the battery, connecting the positive test lead first, followed by the negative. Finally, take a look at the results, understanding that anything below 12.2 volts is indicative of a potential problem.
