Understanding How to Test Your Vehicle Battery

You do not want to be stuck out on the road with a dead battery. To prevent this from happening, it is a good idea to regularly test your battery's charge capacity.

The best way to do this is with a voltmeter. This device is available in both analog and digital form. Be sure to wear a pair of rubber gloves and protective goggles when working with your battery. All of the vehicle's lights and ignition need to be off before starting the voltmeter reading. After connecting the voltmeter test lead to the appropriate battery terminal, you will receive a reading to provide the information that you need.
