A dead car battery can be a cause for concern and can be extremely stressful when it happens at the worst time. If your vehicle won’t start up, your vehicle’s battery may be dead. You may also notice that your vehicle doesn’t crank when you try to start it or that the power windows and locks aren’t working. A car battery can die is a light is left on in your vehicle overnight.

The regular life of a car battery is typically between 3-5 years, but other problems can cause your battery to die unexpectedly.
