Are you having problems with your Ford's car battery? You could be in need of battery replacement. In Arizona, car batteries typically last less than three years due to the excessive heat, leaving you helpless in the event your battery unexpectedly kicks the bucket. To prevent this from happening to you, there are a few warning signs you should keep an eye out for.

If you experience any of these below symptoms, bring your car into our Camelback Ford service center as soon as possible:

Bloating Battery Case

Battery cases often swell in the Arizona heat. If you notice unusual bloating it could be time for a new Ford car battery.

Slow Engine Crank

Does your car take long to start, or does it sometimes not start at all? This could indicate battery failure. A sluggish engine is always cause for concern and should be inspected immediately.

Dim Headlights

When your battery is on its way out, your headlights become dim from the lack of power. This also stands true for all in-car  lighting, which is also powered by the battery.

Low Battery Fluid

If your battery's fluid level is below the lead plates, be sure to have it tested at Camelback Ford. Car battery replacement may be in your near future.
