How Should You Test the Car Battery?

Many informed car owners know exactly what their car battery does but are not sure exactly how to test how well it is working. That is why we here at Pines Ford of Pembroke Pines want to give you a step by step guide of exactly how to do this.

First, take a voltmeter and connect the negative end to the negative battery terminal and the positive side to the positive terminal. Then allow enough time for the meter to take a reading. Any voltage over 12.4 volts is considered a properly functioning battery. It is also important to remember that you should always disconnect the negative terminal first to avoid possible injury.

If you would like one of our experienced and friendly service team members to show you exactly how to test your own battery, then be sure to either give us a call to schedule an appointment or simply stop on by Pines Ford located in Pembroke Pines, FL today!
