Having an unreliable battery can leave your car stranded in an unfortunate situation. Batteries can wear out over time and should be tested regularly to ensure they can hold the required charge and get you to where you need to go.

To test your own battery, make sure that all of the lights are turned off and that the key is out of the ignition. Then connect a voltmeter, either an analog or a digital one, to the battery's positive terminal, and then to the negative one. If the reading is 12.4 or better, your battery is still good. If it's lower than 12.2, it's time to start thinking about getting a new one.
