Honda CR-V Battery Life
How to Tell My Honda CR-V Battery Is Starting to Go
Knowing when your battery is starting to die doesn’t require technical school or automotive certification. You can simply tell when you look at the signs. Like most vehicle components, there’s a set of warnings that will let you know that there’s something amiss and that you’ll want to have it taken care of as soon as possible.
You’ll want to look out for these signs:
- Headlights are dimming
- Slow engine start/cranking
- Clicking sound when you turn the key
- Interior lights/screen is flickering
- You smell rotten eggs under the hood
If you notice any of these signs, you’ll want to shut off non-essential electronics to give yourself more time because it means that your battery will soon die.
How Long Does My Honda CR-V Battery Last?
Car batteries serve a major purpose with allowing your vehicle to not only turn on, but to gain momentum and move forward. Without a functioning battery, your vehicle won’t start or move. So making sure that your battery is in good condition is crucial.
However, like most components, there’s an expiration for your Honda CR-V battery life. Typically, under normal conditions, your battery should last you up to five years. So if you hit the 5-year mark and you still have the same battery, you may want to have it inspected to know when you’ll need to officially have it replaced.
What Should I Do When My Honda CR-V Battery Dies?
If your car battery dies while you’re out on the road, you’ll want to try and pull over out of the way of traffic while activating your hazard lights. You may want to flag down a driver, or call a friend or roadside assistance, for a jump to get a charge to your battery, so you can make it to our service center. Of course, you could always have the vehicle towed.
