A dead battery can leave you stranded and unable to start your car. That’s why it’s important to have your battery tested regularly and replaced if necessary.
Car battery testing is a simple process that can be done quickly, it measures the battery’s ability to hold a charge and to deliver the power needed to start the engine. Our team of experts will test your battery’s voltage and cranking power, and check for any signs of damage or wear. If the battery is found to be weak or failing, it will be replaced with a new, high-quality battery.
A failing battery can cause a variety of problems, some of the common symptoms are:
- Slow engine crank: A weak battery may not have enough power to turn the engine over quickly.
- Car not starting: Eventually, a bad car battery will prevent the car from starting. It will not provide the ignition system with enough power to spark the engine and the car won’t turn on. This can be very inconvenient and require you to call someone for a jump-start.
- Warning lights on: A failing battery can cause the warning lights to turn on, indicating a problem with the electrical system.
- Dim lights: A weak battery can cause the lights to dim or flicker. This is most noticeable when you first turn the keys or push the engine start/stop button.
