Not necessarily. Though a dead battery could be a sign it needs replacing, there could also be a problem with the alternator or other component that would cause the battery to die.
If the battery light is showing on your car’s instrument cluster, it likely means there is an issue with the vehicle’s charging system. We can run tests at Galpin Mazda to find out what the problem is.
Car batteries can last anywhere from three to 10 years, but lifespan depends a lot on the weather conditions where you live, what your driving habits are and other factors.
If the battery is still holding a charge, it most likely just needs to be cleaned. Our service technicians can clean and check your battery’s condition.
