Your car battery can die without warning. That is why it is important for you to test the car battery on a regular basis. You can use a multimeter to read the voltage of your battery. If the voltage is below 12.4 volts, then it is time for you to charge your battery. You also need to perform a crank test. You need to turn off the vehicle. You also need to disable the ignition and fuel. Hook the multimeter up to the battery terminal. You should have this hooked up to multimeter for 15 seconds.

You likely have a weak battery if the voltage is below 9.6 volts. You can charge this battery, but it will likely need to be replaced. Keep in mind that a professional can test your battery, and you don't have to leave your vehicle.
