Have the defective car battery replaced

Defective car batteries are one of the most frequent causes of breakdowns in the UK.

Despite the widespread misconception, car batteries are not completely maintenance-free and have only a limited lifetime.

A battery must be checked for its condition at regular intervals and replaced if necessary.

When should a car battery be changed?

When exactly a car battery needs to be replaced depends on many factors. Frequent starts, poor charging and hot summers accelerate the ageing of the batteries.

With increasing age, the capacity of a battery decreases. Especially in cold winters, older battery models then reach their limits, because low temperatures further reduce the capacity. In the worst case, the capacity of a car battery is then no longer sufficient to start the engine. Such a defect or starting problems due to a weak battery costs the car driver time and nerves. Mostly a breakdown service or the garage has to come to get the car going again.

Why should car batteries be changed over time?

Car batteries do not suddenly break in most cases. However, a defect can occur after only a few years of use. The capacity of the battery tends to decrease gradually, so that the battery stores less and less energy over time, because the maximum possible capacity decreases. The ultimate defect becomes apparent when the energy supply to the car's consumers is no longer sufficient.

Defective batteries cannot be repaired so that in the event of a defect, the only option is to replace the car battery Sheffield. Before the battery fails completely or is discharged, preventive replacement helps.

This saves you from annoying breakdowns due to a broken car battery.

Possible signs of a defective car battery:

  • The engine does not start immediately when starting.
  • During starting, the indicator lamps on the dashboard light up weaker than usual.
  • The heater warms up more slowly.
  • Shortly after starting, the car radio has short dropouts.
  • A smell like rotten eggs.
  • A bloated looking battery case.

In this way, if there is any indication that the battery's capacity is shrinking too much, a battery change can be carried out in good time. Then there will be no difficulty at all in starting the engine or using the entertainment and comfort electronics.
