Car Battery Services in Marietta, GA
Two cars come into a repair shop: One won’t crank or cranks really slowly when you turn the key; the other starts fine but the transmission operates erratically.
Which one needs a new battery?
Truth is, there’s no way to tell yet. It could be both or it could be neither.
The one that won’t crank? That could be due to a bad battery, or maybe it’s just low on charge. Or it could have dirty battery cables, a bad starter… in fact, there’s a whole list of things that could mimic a bad battery.
The erratic transmission? Believe it or not, that could be caused by a battery problem too, even if the engine cranks and starts just fine.
