A: No. The time to replace your battery is when the car tells you or you start to experience quick charge level indicator fluctuations and/or decreased fuel mileage. You should have the car professionally diagnosed if you have any of these symptoms or the warning lights are on. If you would like to be proactive about your Hybrid Battery condition, have it tested sooner rather than later.
A: Most of the time the Hybrid System warning lights or a message on your dashboard will go on, telling you that there is a problem in the hybrid system. Sometimes your hybrid battery charge level indicator might drop sporadically from a high charge to a low charge and then back to a high charge rather quickly. If you are experiencing these types of events it’s a sign that some of the cells / modules in your battery are going bad. Be aware that your warning lights may not even turn on in this scenario. Another symptom of your battery starting to fail is that your fuel economy will start to decrease and eventually decrease significantly. If any of these events start to occur, you should have your battery tested to be certain of what is happening to it.
