Your vehicle’s battery is the heart of the electrical system, and it needs to be working perfectly at all times if you want to avoid serious mechanical problems. Here is a quick look at a few steps that you can take to test a car battery with nothing more than a multimeter.

Before you test the battery, you should make sure that the ignition key is in the off position. You can then connect the multimeter’s red test lead to the positive terminal and black lead to the negative terminal. If the multimeter gives you a reading of 12 volts or less, then your battery needs to be charged or replaced.

The team here at Benson FIAT Studio understands that driving on an old or damaged battery is incredibly hard on a vehicle. Please stop by our service department in Greer, SC to take a look at our selection of high-quality vehicle batteries.
