Car Batteries With Tameside Auto Centre

Just like the batteries in your mobile phone or the remote control for your TV, the battery in your car will degrade and need replacing after a while. In fact, battery problems are one of the biggest causes of breakdowns in the country. The RAC attends more than 500,000 battery related breakdowns per year.

Signs you may need a new battery may include your engine turning over but not starting; not being able to start the engine, lights, or anything else; or a sudden change in reliability – one day your car starts, the next it doesn’t. Of course, there may be other issues afoot such as the alternator or connecting cables, but it’s worth getting looked at.

There are several things you can do to avoid getting a flat battery:

  • Invest in a good quality battery. You might pay more initially, but it will cost less in the long run
  • During the summer always try and park in the shade – the heat that builds up from being parked in the sun can have a detrimental effect on your battery.
  • When buying a new battery check the ratings, specifications, and dimensions for your car. These can usually be found in the users manual. If you have any problems with this, please don’t hesitate to call us. We’re happy to help.
  • Just like in hot weather, cold weather can cause problems with car batteries. It makes it harder for the battery to turn the engine over, and reduces the mount of energy the battery produces. Where possible, keep the car covered or garaged.
  • Make sure all electrical devices are turned off (e.g. wipers, lights, heated rear-window), especially in the winter.
  • If you don’t drive often, or only make very short journeys allow your engine to run for 30 minutes to an hour to allow the battery to recharge fully. Or just find an excuse for a nice long drive!

At Tameside Auto Centre we stock a wide range of batteries for all cars and can diagnose any issues you may be having. If you think you may be having issues with your battery, call us now to arrange a free battery check.
