How to Check Your Toyota Battery in Kansas City, MO
It’s very often that when you don’t see a problem, you may not realize it’s there. Unfortunately, neglecting the needs of your Toyota could lead to big problems such as costly repairs and replacements. That’s why we at Molle Toyota want to give you some pointers on how to check your Toyota battery. We are conveniently located at 601 West 103rd Street in Kansas City, MO.
Even if you haven’t checked your battery at all, your car may be showing some signs without you realizing it. The first sign is how your car starts. If your vehicle may be taking a bit longer than it used to, a dying battery could be the reason why. If you pop the hood and notice the car battery looks a bit swollen, it’s likely the battery is overdue for a replacement. Like other batteries, your vehicle’s battery does not last forever. If you haven’t gotten your battery replaced in the past three to five years, or at all, it’s definitely time to change it.
If you do not have time or the means to check the battery yourself, that’s perfectly fine!

How to Check Your Battery
There are a few methods to checking the battery without taking it in to the shop. One way to check your Toyota’s battery is to crank the engine. If you turn on the ignition and the engine takes more than two seconds to start, it could be the battery needing a charge. Another route to take would be to check the voltage. If the voltage reads lower than 12.4 volts, it is definitely in need of a charge. If it is over 12.9 volts, you actually have excessive voltage.
