Ways to test your car's battery

A dead car battery could leave you stranded far from home, so it's important to know if your battery is starting to go bad. There is a device called a multimeter that can test your battery and tell you how much juice is left, but most people don't own one. Luckily, there are some ways to test if your battery is going bad.

One easy way to know if your battery is failing is to listen to the car while it starts. If you hear clicking when you turn the ignition, it's a sign your battery is failing. Another way to test your battery power is to leave the headlights on with the car off for 10 or 15 minutes. When you restart the car, see if the headlights dim. If they do, it could be the sign of a failing battery.
