What Does It Take to Test a Battery?

Batteries are just as important to your car as they are to your cell phone or your laptop. Without it, your car simply won't run because there is no current created to start your vehicle. That is why our team here at Hansel Ford located right here in Santa Rosa, CA are here to give you a quick rundown on how to test your car battery.

The most important tool that you can own to test the car battery is a voltmeter. This is connected to the battery once the car and all the lights are off to read the voltage in the battery. Any reading between 12.3 volts and 12.6 volts is seen as a working battery. Once it falls below this number you should begin looking into a new one.

If you would like us to replace your battery for you then be sure to stop on by our service center here at Hansel Ford located in Santa Rosa today!
