Vehicle Battery Testing for Beginners

Although batteries are designed to last a designated number of months or years, they may fail due to extreme weather temperatures and conditions. Signs might include malfunctioning electronic equipment or dimmed dashboard and headlights. When the battery charge seems to be dropping, testing the part is a sure fire way to determine if replacement is necessary.

Here's how you can test your battery safely at home. Make sure the vehicle and all electronic components are turned off. Attach the red positive voltmeter lead to the positive battery post. Attach the black negative lead to the negative battery post.

A battery in good working condition should register a voltage reading between 12.6 and 12.4. If the reading is less, try removing the buildup on the battery posts using the proper tools and cleaning solution. Perform the test again. If you still get a low reading, make an appointment at the Honda service garage at DCH Gardena Honda to have your battery serviced or replaced.
