Car Battery and Key Fob Batteries

There’s nothing worse than your car battery running flat. To prevent this from happening to you, or to help you out when it does, we offer free battery health checks to test the status of your battery. If necessary, we can replace your vehicle’s battery on-site or if you’re local we can come to you! If your headlights are starting to dim, or your car is difficult to start, we are only a phone call away. Battery health is also checked as part of our servicing, this is included in both interim service & full service.

Frequently asked questions about car batteries

We get the same questions from many of our customers so rest assured you are not the only one who needs a little bit of guidance when deciding what is best for your car. 

If the cranking of the engine is sluggish, like your vehicle is harder to start on cold mornings, it starts inconsistently, or there’s no sound and interior lights when you try to start, suspect a failing battery, a loose or corroded connection or electrical draw.

Yes! If you are local in the Colchester area, we can come to you. Give us a call. 

This can vary. We can advise on your battery health first. After three years, it’s normally time to install a replacement. After four or five years, most car batteries will be almost completely unreliable. Old car batteries can present a number of safety and reliability issues.
