Does my car battery need replacing?

There are several reasons a car battery might fail. It could be due to lights being left on overnight or merely the fact that it’s nearing the end of its life. To identify if your battery needs replacing, there are several indicators to watch out for.

The most common warning sign is your vehicle’s dashboard warning lights. If you see the battery or the engine lights illuminate, this indicates that you should have your car’s battery tested as soon as you can.

Other problems which suggest engine faults include your car having difficulty starting and electrical issues in your vehicle. These can consist of dimmed and flashing lights, or if your dashboard is flickering. Either of these issues could suggest a fault in the engineer’s internal components or a lack of power being able to reach the car’s electrical system.

Regardless of the issue, get in touch, and we can complete a full diagnostic and confirm that your engine needs replacing before any work starts.


How do you know which battery to use for a replacement, and what happens to my old battery?

After you bring your vehicle in, if we don’t already have one in stock, we’ll help you locate and procure an appropriate battery for your car’s make and model. If you’d instead locate a battery yourself, the required battery size for your vehicle can be found in its owner’s manual. Alternatively, many websites can be used to find a correct match by simply entering your registration number.

No need to worry about your old battery; once we have completed the replacement, we will safely send it away to be recycled. Due to their high levels of pollutants and the difficult to recycle components that make up car batteries, it’s not possible to discard them with household rubbish. We will always get rid of batteries in the most environmentally friendly means possible.

So, to get you battery checked for faults or replaced entirely, book your vehicle in with us. You can give us a call or book online; our team is ready to help you with anything that’ll optimise your car’s performance and keep you safe on the road.
