Free Virtual Car Battery Testing

Test Your Car Battery Right Here, Right Now


If you don't have time to visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a free battery test, use our virtual battery tester to get a general idea of how much life may be left in your car battery. Simply select your car’s year, make, model, engine type, and your zip code and we’ll provide you with an estimate of how much longer your battery may last. We factor in the age of your battery and the region you drive in to provide our best estimate.

Keep in mind that the average car battery lasts about four years, but some factors could reduce or extend the lifespan of your battery. Factors like intense heat, heavy driving on dirt roads, a lot of short/slow drives, and using too many accessories while driving (like auxiliary jacks) can reduce the lifespan of your battery.

If you know your battery is four years old or older, you may want to go ahead and simply replace it with a new battery. A new battery could be less expensive than calling emergency roadside assistance, or could save you time if you have to call a friend for a jump.

For the most complete test and analysis though, we encourage you to stop by your local Firestone Complete Auto Care, especially if you’re noticing signs of a weak or dying battery.
