Q: Car won't start; possible battery problem

asked by on

It is very possible that you have a bad battery. Batteries typically last 5 to 10 years and when they go bad they will not produce enough cranking amps to crank the car. I would recommend having a technician come out and load test the battery and test the alternator as well to determine what is causing your car's starting issue.
