Want to learn more about Car Battery replacements in Berkshire?

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

What does a vehicle’s battery replacement in Berkshire involve?

  • Mechanic will inspect the electrical system.
  • If necessary the battery is replaced
  • Mechanic makes sure the battery's cables have not corroded or damaged before putting them back.
  • Mechanic tests the battery charging system to confirm it is working as it should be.

  • When you turn the key in the ignition, you have no lights on the dashboard.
  • When you attempt to start the engine, you get a very slow turn over, nothing at all or just a rapid clicking.

How long will a battery replacement take in Berkshire?

A car battery replacement usually takes under 1 hour, but can take more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How do you know if your car needs a new battery?

Every time a battery goes “flat”, it can damage the cells in the unit and whilst it may show 12v the actual power of the battery is reduced. Therefore if you are having to get assistance to start a vehicle due to the battery, then you should really consider changing it.

With the newer batteries having higher demands on them, the lifespan has reduced and these batteries may only last 3 years. If you are buying a second hand car for instance, that has an automatic stop/start system, it's worth taking into consideration the cost of buying a new battery and replacing the one installed if it hasn’t been recently done.

How much does it cost to fix a dead car battery in Berkshire?

Fixing a dead car battery may require replacement of the battery. Average cost for the replacement is £130. Battery prices for vehicles with a stop/start system are usually a bit higher.

How much does it cost to service a battery in Berkshire?

You can't technically service a car battery, if it is faulty it is commonly replaced. Cost for a battery replacement will vary between between £100 and £300, if your vehicle has a stop/start system the price could be a little higher.

How do I find the right battery for my car?

Your vehicle's manual will have guidance on the correct battery needed for the car. If you are unsure which battery is required, check with a professional mechanic, they will be able to help to identify which battery is needed for the car. Our in-house mechanic team can help find the right battery for you.

Is a faulty battery an MOT failure?

Yes, batteries are checked as part of an MOT and hence your car can fail on an issue with the battery that is considered a major issue. For example it might be flagged that your car battery is mounted insecurely or that the battery is leaking.

My car is not starting, how do I know if it's a battery, alternator or starter motor issue?

If you notice that the engine starts but dies soon after, then the alternator probably isn't keeping the battery charged. When you start up the car and notice that the interior lights are slowly fading, it could also indicate an issue with the alternator.

If you try jump starting the car and it works, it could imply an issue with the battery. However, it is important to note that a dead battery can also be caused by a failing alternator.

To test the starter, put on the headlights, if they don't come on, then the battery is probably flat or dead and may need to be recharged or replaced. If the headlights do come on, then try starting the car. If it still won't start, then the starter motor may be the problem.

What is the warranty on a car battery?

Most car batteries come with a warranty of 3-5 years, but this can differ based on the manufacturer and the individual warranty conditions.
