Testing Your Vehicle’s Battery

January 30th, 2020 by

It's important to keep your car's battery as healthy as possible to avoid being stranded. Here at Planet Alfa Romeo, we are here to keep you as informed as possible about your vehicle.

Test Your Battery With a Voltmeter

Did you know you can test your battery yourself? All you need is a voltmeter. Start by turning the ignition off. Set your voltmeter to measure volts and touch the positive and negative test probes to the positive and negative terminals on the battery; a healthy battery should measure to 12.4 volts or higher. If the battery continuously measures below 12.4 volts and has trouble holding a charge it may be time for a new battery.
