6 ways to check your batteries
1. Low fluid level
If your battery has removable covers you can inspect the level of electrolyte fluid inside the cells. You will see metal plates inside (side on from top). Fluid should be higher than the plate. Top up with distilled water (de-ionised).
2. Poor charging from alternator
A simple way to test if your alternator is charging is to start your car and put all your lights on full beam. When you rev your engine you should just be able to see the lights going brighter and then dimmer when you stop revving. If the car stalls when you put your lights on then the problem is probably with the alternator.
3. Incorrect battery fitted
Your battery needs the correct amp/hour ratings for your vehicle or your engine may stall or have trouble starting. Our staff can advise on the correct battery for your car.
4. Cheap batteries
Buying cheap batteries is not always a good idea as it can result to buying twice.
We complete a full battery charging system diagnostic to identify any problems.
6. Dashboard lights
A red light flickering on your dashboard needs to be checked as it could be a battery fault.
