If there is an issue with your battery, you'll usually see signs of the problem before there is a complete loss of power. One of the first signs you might notice is slow starting. While this could also be associated with a starter that's going out, a failing battery is usually the least expensive place to start when you visit Lithia Subaru of Oregon City.

Your lights might dim at random intervals while you're driving at night. This usually occurs when there is simply not enough power from your battery to handle all of the electrical components that are running at one time.

Sometimes, your check engine light will come on to let you know that there is an issue with your battery. Keep in mind that the light can come on for other issues, but if you don't hear any odd noises or notice any significant changes, then the battery could be the cause.
