How to Test Your Car's Battery

A car battery is the only thing standing between you and being late to work because your car won't start. That is why our team of automotive experts here at Wagner Kia of Shrewsbury located in Shrewsbury, MA want to be sure that you know the basics of how to test the quality of your battery.

The first thing you'll want to do is hook up a voltmeter to your battery once it is completely off and the keys are out of the ignition. You can do this by connecting the black terminal to the black cord and the red terminal to the red cord. Any reading above 12.4 volts means your good to go. If you fall below this level, it's time for a new battery.
