Testing Your Car's Battery

Taking the time to test your car's battery can be one of the top ways to avoid long-term damage in the future. The battery is one of the most important components of the vehicle, and wear can appear quickly. Fortunately, however, testing procedures can be very quick and simple.

Before you begin the testing itself, make sure that you take out your ignition key and that all of the car's lights are off. When ready, connect the positive voltmeter test lead up with your battery's corresponding terminal. Then connect the negative test lead with the corresponding negative terminal. Compare the reading you get to your chart.
