How to know if your car battery needs to be replaced

If you suspect your car’s battery is coming to the end of its life, call into your local Setyres depot for a free battery health check. We complete this free car battery check by comparing your battery against the manufacturer's specifications.

How long do car batteries last?

Car batteries have an average lifespan of four years – when batteries reach about 3 years of age, make sure you look out for signs which might suggest your battery is coming to the end of its life:

  • Is your ignition taking longer to turn over?
  • Do your car’s headlights appear dimmer, as well as hazards and indicators?
  • Is your car engine not turning over at all and causing a rapid clicking noise?

Car battery services with Setyres

Our expertly trained technicians will use specialist equipment to make sure your car battery can hold charge effectively. They will also check its ‘Cranking’ abilities (which is the battery’s capability) to deliver the power bursts required to start your car.

Your car’s battery is one of the most important components of your vehicle. It’s the source of all power in the vehicle, so maintenance and care are vital.

Why do car batteries fail?

Battery failure can be caused by a number of things:

  • Infrequent use of your car
  • Severe cold weather
  • Leaving the lights or radio on
  • Low battery water level due to high under bonnet temperatures, which results in high acid in the battery
  • High vehicle vibration.

Simple and easy maintenance of your car battery will help lengthen its lifespan and help maintain its reliability:

  • Keep your car battery clean and dry at all times.
  • Ensure the battery is secure and the connections are not loose.
  • Never allow the battery to run completely flat.
  • Ensure all lights (both interior and exterior) are turned off when leaving the vehicle.
  • Avoid using the radio when the car is not running.
