Common Ford Battery Problems & Issues

Car batteries usually last between three and five years, depending on usage, climate, and age. Some warning signs of a faulty battery include a slow to start engine, various electrical issues, and a lit check engine light. If you experience any of those issues, it’s time to schedule a service appointment.

Below, our team compiled some tips for extending your car’s battery life.

  • Limit short rides — short trips don’t allow the battery to fully recharge
  • Keep the battery clean — wipe off any dirt and dust particles to avoid corrosion and rust
  • Limit electronic use while idling — charging your phone or listening to the radio when the vehicle is not in use can drain the battery
  • Make sure to turn off all lights when exiting — leaving your lights on accidentally can drain the battery
