Keeping your car battery charged and supplying your car with electricity is as important as putting in your fuel. Your car battery is used to start the car as well as provide electricity to the other gadgets in your car, such as your satnav, heated seats and radio. Luckily your car does recharge itself when travelling however travelling repeated short distances can mean your car hasn’t had enough travel-time to charge its battery.

How do I tell if I need a new battery?
It can be difficult to know when it’s time to replace your car battery, however there are a few tell-tale signs, which are:
- Your car is slow to start
- Your car battery engine light comes on
- Your car battery casing appears swollen or bloated
- You can see battery fluid around the car battery
Our highly-trained team at Autocentres can check your car battery and advise you on the best solution for you, which may be a simple battery recharge or fitting a completely new battery. If we do replace your car battery, we will always dispose of your old battery in an environmentally responsible way.
