“Works and life had been quite crazy the last couple of weeks so my booking through ClickMechanic was pretty much 'last minute' before heading on a long journey. I cannot be happier that I found ClickMechanic and that Mark picked-up my booking. His communication throughout was polite and efficient. The job (rear brake pad change) was completed within the estimated time limit and (from what I can tell) really high quality. Mark was even kind enough to give me a check on the tyre wear. I would recommend him highly.“

Want to learn more about Battery Cable replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a battery cable do?

The battery cables are used to bring power from the battery to all the other electrical equipment in the car.

How do you know there is something wrong with the battery cables?

  • When the car does not start.
  • When the car makes clicking noises when starting.
  • When the electrical equipment (light etc.) doesn't work.
  • When you notice the cable is corroded or damaged.

When should you consider having your car's battery cable replaced?

Over time, the condition of the battery leads can deteriorate. Usually the battery leads corrode, especially at the connectors to the battery. In other cases it might be that cracks appear in the cable's plastic coating due to being exposed to the high temperature fluctuations in the engine bay.

When the leads have corroded it will cause a bad connection in the electrical system. It is therefore important to replace the battery leads when they are damaged or corroded. The lead can, when it is damaged, not transfer the correct current to the other parts of the electrical system leading to a numerous other issues. Always service the battery cables as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a battery cable replacement?

  • Mechanic checks the electrical and battery system.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace cable.
  • Mechanic will advise if other components need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will test the starter motor.
  • Mechanic will test the alternator voltage output.
