What does a battery do?

The battery, it's that big and heavy thing stuck under your bonnet that always seems to lose all of its juice right when you need it. Either when you want to be on your way to work or when you want to escape from that birthday party at your in-laws you'd wished you had never gone to.

Cumbersome it might be, but the battery is an important component of your car; without it your car will not start nor will you be able to use any electrical equipment like the lights and radio.

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

  • When the car cannot be started.
  • When all the car's electrical equipment does not work.
  • When the battery's terminals and connectors have corroded.
  • When the parts of the battery are covered by a blueish or white powder.

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

As the battery is normally charged through the car's alternator while you drive your car, it is only on rare occasions that a battery goes flat. Sometimes it can be that the battery is drained and only needs a recharge, other times it might really be a case of a faulty battery.

Over time, it can be that a battery will leak acid, the acid will dry and turn into a white or bluish powder causing corrosion. If the battery's connectors or cables are affected, it can be that further problems might occur. As this process progesses it can, eventually, render the battery and cables obsolete and can prevents the car from starting.

Other times the battery has simply given all that it had to give. There are, of course, several other reasons why a battery replacement would be necessary. If a certain electrical component does not work it might not necessarily point to a failed battery. It can be that a fuse has blown or a switch has burnt through. If you are unsure whether your battery needs replacing then ClickMechanic is here to help. Our mechanics are able to establish precisely if the battery needs to be replaced.

What happens during a battery replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the electrical system.
  • Mechanic will load test the battery.
  • If necessary battery is replaced if it happens to be bad.
  • Mechanic makes sure the battery's cables have not corroded or damaged before putting them back
  • Mechanic tests the battery system to establish if the system now charges correctly.

How much does a Battery Replacement cost?

The cost of a battery replacement depends on the type of battery your car's manufacturer recommends for your car. Find out what you could save by having your battery replaced by Clickmechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
