Car Battery Charging, Maintenance & Testing

Car Battery Charging & Testing in Hamilton

A car battery is one of the most important components of a vehicle, it is responsible for providing power to the starter and electrical systems. 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:

  1. Slow engine crank: A weak battery may not have enough power to turn the engine over quickly.
  2. 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.
  3. Warning lights on: A failing battery can cause the warning lights to turn on, indicating a problem with the electrical system.
  4. 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.

Booked the ol' Fuga in for a service this week. I dropped it off early to take advantage of the free clean and asked if I could have it ready at 3 pm. The service went well and they... pointed out things that would need attention in the future. I like the introduction of the vehicle service and repair log book. Which has all my previous services and fix ups recorded in it. And the Fuga was freshly cleaned and ready at 3pm, like they said. Thanks Team
